Carbon Capture Coalition submits memo to Biden’s climate team for first 100 days

February 1, 2021 |

In Washington, the Carbon Capture Coalition has submitted a memo to President Biden’s climate team, providing a targeted list of climate, energy, infrastructure, and related federal policy recommendations for the first 100 days of the new administration and 117th Congress. A broad suite of policies will be needed to commercialize carbon capture and removal technologies and enable meeting the administration’s goal of a 100 percent clean energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050.

Building upon landmark bipartisan legislation, including the 2018 FUTURE Act and the recently passed Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 omnibus bill, Congress and the administration now have a critical near-term opportunity to advance a comprehensive and ambitious policy portfolio for large-scale deployment of carbon capture, removal, transport, use and geological storage technologies. Carbon capture is a critical component for the economywide decarbonization needed to meet midcentury climate goals, while also generating new economic opportunities and high-wage jobs across the country.
