NASEO Releases New Report on Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage: Overview and Considerations for State Planning

NASEO recently released a new publication, Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage: Overview and Considerations for State Planning. Increasingly urgent concerns about climate impacts from carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHG) are prompting a growing numbers of states, localities, and private companies to enact policies and establish targets to reduce emissions. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) offers an important approach to reduce emissions from energy and industrial facilities and can, at times, provide additional economic value when recovered CO2 is used in production processes or incorporated into useful materials and products. This report outlines state energy planning and policy considerations to support CCUS and includes an overview of CO2 source sectors, CCUS activities, CO2 capture technologies and potential utilization of CO2.
