  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy The Status of Carbon Capture Projects in the U.S. (And What They Need to Break Ground)

    In February 2018, the U.S. Congress passed the Bipartisan Budget Act, which included the expansion and extension of the 45Q tax credits for carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS.) The updated incentive was designed to be much more effective in driving new CCUS projects and immediately generated private sector interest. Just a few months later, […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy The Need for an Adequate Commence Construction Window for 45Q Federal Tax Credits for CCUS

    Developing a carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) project can take as long as five years and require investments of close to $50 million before construction can begin. To take advantage of the current 45Q tax credit, construction on a CCUS project must commence before January 1, 2024. Despite the fact that 45Q was signed […]
