Geoengineering: Governance and Technology Policy

Geoengineering: Governance and Technology Policy

Date: November 26, 2013
Creator: Bracmort, Kelsi & Lattanzio, Richard K.
Description: This report is intended as a primer on the policy issues, science, and governance of geoengineering technologies. The report will first set the policy parameters under which geoengineering technologies may be considered. It will then describe selected technologies in detail and discuss their status. The third section provides a discussion of possible approaches to governmental involvement in, and oversight of, geoengineering, including a summary of domestic and international instruments and institutions that may affect geoengineering projects.

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 & Parfomak, Paul W.
Description: This report reviews the history of pipeline regulation, including the limited history of interstate carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline regulation, and examines the regulatory missions of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Surface Transportation Board (STB), and other agencies.
