What Role Will CCS Play in Cutting Industrial Carbon Emissions?

Industrial emissions are being overlooked in the global climate debate, which focuses largely on energy policy. Carbon capture and storage technology can — and should — play a role in helping industry cut its carbon footprint, according to the Global CCS Institute.

Another One Bites the Dust: DOE Pulls Carbon Capture Project’s Funding

Funding for a large carbon capture and storage project in Texas has been pulled by the US Department of Energy. This move will effectively kill the Texas Clean Energy Project, the project’s developer, Summit Texas Clean Energy, told Inside Climate News. In February the DOE denied Summit Texas Clean Energy’s … Read more »
