  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Storing CO2: Planning Tomorrow’s Net-Zero Infrastructure

    Experts say that carbon capture to decarbonize energy-intensive industries and reduce historical emissions is an essential part of the world’s pathway to a net-zero emissions future. What is often overlooked, however, is the urgent need to develop CO2 storage infrastructure in saline formations today.  After all, how would capturing CO2 from factories or the air reduce emissions if we cannot permanently dispose of

  • 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.

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Petra Nova: De-risking Carbon Capture Business Models with Saline Storage

    The carbon capture facility Petra Nova has made headlines recently when it stopped capturing CO2. “Earlier this spring when oil prices fell, we ceased operations at Petra Nova and the delivery of CO2 to the West Ranch Oil Field,” Chris Rimel, a spokesman of NRG, the company that runs the plant, said in a statement […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy 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. Other nations that are looking to create successful carbon reduction policies […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Climate Crisis Report Highlights Six Needs for Innovation, Carbon Capture

    The House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released its long-anticipated Action Plan last week, providing a pathway and policy recommendations for reducing emissions to net-zero by mid-century and prevent the worst effects of climate change. With the inclusion of carbon capture technologies as able “to drastically reduce pollution from multiple industry subsectors by capturing emissions associated with both energy use and chemical processes” the report echoes recent conclusions […]

  • News & Media CATF Statement on Release of IRS Guidance for 45Q Tax Credits for Carbon Capture Projects

    Kurt Waltzer, Managing Director, Clean Air Task Force, has issued the following statement: “CATF welcomes the long-awaited IRS guidance on 45Q tax credits. With it, CCS developers can move ahead on projects with certainty as to how the credits will be administered.  As the IPCC has noted, large scale deployment of CCS is necessary to […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy U.S. Department of Energy Goes Deep, Investing in Geologic Carbon Storage

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) made an important decision in late April to fund five CarbonSAFE project applications for a total of $85 million. These five projects are part of the Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE), a NETL initiative to further the development of regional commercial-scale geologic storage sites […]
