  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy National Petroleum Council Issues Positive Report on CCUS

    CATF says we can keep costs down and innovation up. The National Petroleum Council (NPC) released its new report on carbon capture, transport and storage this week. The report underscores the importance of carbon capture and identifies policies that would make the technology widespread across the industrial and power sectors. In the short-term, the report

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage: Four Critical Policy Goals

    The Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI) has just released its latest annual report with some positive news about new projects, but at the same time, presenting a clear-eyed view on how far and how quickly we must proceed if carbon capture, utilization & storage (CCUS) is to play a critical role in addressing […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Leveraging Enhanced Oil Recovery for Large-Scale Saline Storage of CO₂

    Leveraging the demand for CO₂ from the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) industry is a critical step to building out a robust ecosystem for large-scale CO₂ storage in saline sites. Frequently asked questions below provide perspective on the role that EOR plays in enabling carbon capture & storage (CCS) technologies to achieve the scale necessary for […]

  • News & Media CATF Statement on Murkowski, Manchin CCUS Legislation

    Clean Air Task Force supports Senators Manchin and Murkowski in their efforts to expand support for transformational carbon capture utilization and storage technologies in the proposed Enhancing Fossil Fuel Energy Carbon Technology Act. CATF supports the bill’s goal of creating four new programs to further develop transformational CCUS technologies for coal- and gas-fueled power and […]

  • News & Media CATF Releases Modeling Study That Shows 45Q Carbon Capture & Storage Federal Tax Credit Can Have a Major Impact On CO2 Emissions Reductions Through 2030

    Clean Air Task Force (CATF) today released a comprehensive report on the near-term implications of the federal tax credit (45Q) for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects. The study found that, as a result of tax credit legislation known as 45Q, which was extended and expanded in early 2018, nearly 49 million metric tonnes of […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy CCS Could Reduce 49 Million Tonnes of CO2 Emissions From Coal & Gas Power Plants

    This time last year, the U.S. Congress passed a bipartisan bill called the Bipartisan Budget Act, which expanded and extended the 45Q federal tax credits for carbon capture and storage (CCS.) Happy anniversary, 45Q! As we entered a new world of 45Q, CATF took on the task of quantifying the impact of 45Q in the […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy The New Economics of Carbon Capture: Lower Costs, More Revenue

    The next CCS coal retrofits promise to be a lot cheaper. Last year, after the successful Petra Nova retrofit of the W.A. Parish Plant, NRG stated that the next retrofit would be 20% cheaper. They know from building the first plant where to eliminate “overkill” in the system and where to gain efficiencies that shrink the size of expensive components.

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Deep Thinking on Geology and the Rollback of the Clean Power Plan

    If you’re like me, you’re alarmed by the regulatory rollbacks that are undermining health and environmental protections that we have enjoyed in the United States. One such rollback is EPA’s proposal to replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, the regulatory requirements that would reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants, with the “Affordable” Clean Energy (ACE) rule.
