Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Carbon Capture and Sequestration

   By Kathy G. Beckett and David M. Flannery, Members, Jackson Kelly PLLC; General Editor Bradley M. Marten

As the United States continues to debate the climate change issue, attention is being focused on the burning of fossil-fuels for power generation, manufacturing, and transportation as a primary source of greenhouse gases. Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology holds out the promise of being able to store carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities underground in deep storage sites, such as enhanced oil and gas recovery, saline aquifers, and shale formations. This pamphlet discusses the status of the development of CCS siting and regulation in the United States.
