ABSTRACT

Carbon Sequestration Legislation in the 116th Congress [October 30, 2019]   [open pdf - 417KB]

From the Document: "Utilizing permanent underground storage of carbon dioxide (CO2), also known as geological sequestration, as a potential strategy to reduce net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is receiving increasing congressional attention. Proponents of geologic sequestration of CO2 view the process as a promising method of reducing GHG emissions from industrial sources, such as coal-fired power plants, while continuing to use fossil fuels as a source of electricity. Several bills introduced in the 116th Congress would address geological sequestration policy issues, focusing on federal research and development (R&D) and federal tax credits for storing carbon."
