Interactive Map of CCUS Projects in Development in the U.S.
The expanded and extended 45Q tax credit for carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) projects passed by the U.S. Congress in early 2018 is the most significant carbon capture-specific incentive available, globally, and is spurring the progress of dozens of projects around the country.

The Rise of Commercial Fusion Startups: A Brief History of Fusion
Nuclear fusion is what powers the stars and creates many of the elements that make up our universe. A fusion reaction occurs when two elements overcome fundamental forces of nature to join together under high temperatures and pressures. In the process, energy is released, which can be calculated through Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2. Fusion energy […]Super Pollutants
Clean Air Task Force Statement on EPA Recission of Federal Methane Pollution Standards
Later today, EPA will announce its plan to rescind critical methane pollution standards for the oil and natural gas industry, a move that will not only hurt our climate, but also puts public health at risk. Beyond rescinding methane standards, the EPA also announced that it will weaken some requirements for the industry to find […]Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Six Key Ways Petra Nova Has Shown That Carbon Capture Works
Why Petra Nova Matters: In Asia, there are 600 GW of coal power plants that are under ten years old. These plants will likely operate for decades before closing. By then, it will be too late to address climate change unless they install carbon capture. The Petra Nova project shows that carbon dioxide capture and sequestration works on a commercial scale. Petra Nova’s example can be replicated not just on other coal plants but also on cement, steel, and gas power plants.Super Pollutants
Essential Actions for EU Methane Strategy
Clean Air Task Force recently submitted comments on the European Commission’s methane roadmap and outlined the key elements that must be included in the upcoming methane strategy in order to mitigate methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. The EU methane roadmap sets the stage for the subsequent methane strategy, and the implementing policies and measures, […]
We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.

Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
Examining All Options with an Open Mind
Advanced Energy Systems
Provide the world with a vision of practical, resilient pathways to a zero carbon energy system.
Advanced Nuclear Energy
Create a normal global research and development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish in order to decarbonize global energy production.
Redirect the production and use of bioenergy so that it contributes to—rather than undermines—decarbonization and climate stability.
Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Accelerate the adoption of carbon capture technologies to prevent CO2 emissions from power generation and industrial sources.
Ensure the adoption of U.S. emission standards on U.S. fossil power plants to zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to help stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
