The FutureGen Carbon Capture and Sequestration Project: A Brief History and Issues for Congress

The FutureGen Carbon Capture and Sequestration Project: A Brief History and Issues for Congress

Date: February 10, 2014
Creator: Folger, Peter
Description: This report briefly summarizes the history of FutureGen, discusses why it has gained interest and support from some members of Congress and the Administration while remaining in initial stages of development, and offers some policy considerations on barriers that challenge its further development as a model for a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) program. A timeline history of FutureGen is included at the end of this report.

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. 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

Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Date: February 23, 2009
Creator: Folger, Peter
Description: This report covers 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. Forests and agricultural lands store carbon, and the world's oceans exchange huge amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere through natural processes.
