Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)

Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)

Date: June 10, 2008
Creator: Folger, Peter
Description: This report discusses carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), but not other types of carbon sequestration activities whereby CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and stored in vegetation, soils, or oceans.

Greenhouse Gas Reduction: Cap-and-Trade Bills in the 110th Congress

Greenhouse Gas Reduction: Cap-and-Trade Bills in the 110th Congress

Date: June 27, 2008
Creator: Parker, Larry
Description: This report discusses the Cap-and-Trade Bills in the 110th Congress which are meant to advance market-based greenhouse gas reduction programs, similar to the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. The report presents a side-by-side comparison of the major provision in each of the bills and includes a glossary of common terms.

Forest Carbon Markets: Potential and Drawbacks

Forest Carbon Markets: Potential and Drawbacks

Date: July 3, 2008
Creator: Gorte, Ross W.
Description: This report describes current markets for forest carbon sequestration, the potential for using forest to offset other sources of greenhouse gas emissions, and the drawbacks related to forest carbon sequestration efforts.

Regulation of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Sequestration Pipelines: Jurisdictional Issues

Regulation of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Sequestration Pipelines: Jurisdictional Issues

Date: April 15, 2008
Creator: Vann, Adam
Description: This report reviews the history of pipeline regulation, including the limited history of interstate CO2 pipeline regulation, and examines the regulatory missions of FERC, the STB, and other agencies. The report discusses possible responses to perceived jurisdictional uncertainties under existing law as well as potential legislative steps intended to address any potential regulatory “gap” in interstate CO2 pipeline jurisdiction.

Community Acceptance of Carbon Capture and Sequestration Infrastructure: Siting Challenges

Community Acceptance of Carbon Capture and Sequestration Infrastructure: Siting Challenges

Date: July 29, 2008
Creator: Parfomak, Paul W.
Description: This report discusses the possible role public and community acceptance may play in the siting of CO2 infrastructure for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). The report reviews what is known about public opinion of CCS as an overall strategy to combat climate change. The report examines community acceptance of CO2 emissions controls, pipelines, and sequestration sites based on analogies, CO2 experience, and focused research. It also discusses community acceptance issues related to selected alternatives to CCS policies, such as investment in renewable energy infrastructure and nuclear power. The report introduces key CCS policy considerations as Congress continues to evaluate opportunities and requirements for carbon control.

Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS): A Primer

Date: May 14, 2012
Creator: Folger, Peter
Description: This report is a brief summary of what CCS is, how it is supposed to work, why it has gained the interest and support of some members of Congress, and what some of the challenges are to its implementation and deployment across the United States.

Ocean Acidification

Ocean Acidification

Date: July 2, 2009
Creator: Buck, Eugene H.
Description: With increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, the extent of effects on the ocean and marine resources is an increasing concern. One aspect of this issue is the ongoing process whereby seawater becomes acidified (i.e., ocean acidification) as more CO2 dissolves in it, causing hydrogen ion concentration in seawater to increase.

Pipelines for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Control: Network Needs and Cost Uncertainties

Pipelines for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Control: Network Needs and Cost Uncertainties

Date: January 10, 2008
Creator: Parfomak, Paul W.
Description: This report examines key uncertainties in CO2 pipeline requirements for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) by contrasting hypothetical pipeline scenarios in one region of the United States. The report summarizes the key factors influencing CO2 pipeline configuration for major power plants in the region, and illustrates how the viability of different sequestration sites may lead to enormous differences in pipeline costs.

The Carbon Cycle: Implications for Climate Change and Congress

The Carbon Cycle: Implications for Climate Change and Congress

Date: February 18, 2009
Creator: Folger, Peter
Description: Congress is considering several legislative strategies that would reduce U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases—primarily carbon dioxide (CO2)—and/or increase uptake and storage of CO2 from the atmosphere. Both approaches are viewed by many observers as critical to forestalling global climate change caused, in part, by the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from human activities.
