EPA’s golden opportunity to dramatically reduce climate pollution from the U.S. fossil fuel-fired power fleet
Pollution standards are designed to ensure that polluters control their emissions instead of imposing them on people and the planet.
The time is now: The Biden administration must adopt strict CO2 emission standards for the power sector
The problem of climate pollution from the power sector is so great that it demands both pushes and pulls.
GAO report highlights the importance of DOE carbon capture and storage demonstration funding
GAO report on carbon capture and storage shows where things stand now and what’s possible in the future under improved policy conditions.
Industrial carbon capture: Reducing emissions with higher 45Q values
How much carbon dioxide will the industrial sector capture if Congress raises the value of 45Q tax credits?
Scaling Up Climate Ambition: Carbon Capture, Removal, and Storage Priorities in the 117th Congress
Carbon capture, removal, and storage technologies are essential for achieving climate and net-zero emissions goals.
Bipartisan Support for Carbon Capture Jobs
Bipartisan support is growing for carbon capture. Both Democrats and Republicans support new efforts to enhance tax credits that reward companies for capturing CO2 and storing it underground. These credits, known as 45Q, are the primary federal policy driver for CCS. First, President Biden’s American Jobs Plan advocates 45Q enhancements…
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.
Can Carbon Capture Achieve 99+% CO2 Removal from Industrial and Power Plants?
Scientific studies of climate change have reached a sobering conclusion. It won’t be enough just to make deep reductions in carbon dioxide releases. By the second half of this century, all CO₂ emissions must be removed from the energy system. This requirement means capturing 90% of the CO₂ emissions from…
