Carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is recognized by most energy outlooks as an essential component in the portfolio of solutions needed to mitigate climate change. The United States is uniquely positioned as the world leader in CCUS and has substantial capability to drive widespread deployment. The U.S. currently deploys approximately 80% of the world’s CCUS capacity. However, the United States’ 25 million tonnes per annum of CCUS capacity represents less than 1% of U.S. CO2 emissions from stationary sources.
Building on existing research and expertise, Meeting the Dual Challenge addresses the entire CCUS supply chain and recognizes that at-scale success requires economic and operational integration across industries, harmonized local/state/federal regulations, innovation and technology development, and broad public acceptance. Meeting the Dual Challenge details the actions needed to deploy carbon capture technologies at scale in the United States.
The National Petroleum Council is a Federal Advisory Council composed of approximately 200 members appointed by the Secretary of Energy from a broad cross section of the energy industry, state government, nongovernmental organizations, and academia. The Council’s sole purpose is to provide advice to the Federal Government.
