Developing CCS Projects in Texas

27th October 2020

The Global CCS Institute and USEA, with support from the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, held webinars on October 21st and 22nd, exploring opportunities to deploy CCS projects in Texas.

The momentum and vital need for carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies has never been greater. With a strong industrial base and the highest CO2 emissions of any state, Texas needs CCS to compete in a decarbonizing world. And CCS needs Texas, with its prime geology, business experience, and political support for this critical technology.

The 45Q tax credit is now making CCS projects profitable. Business leaders and experts in capture technology, geology, transportation infrastructure, economics, and more will provide webinar participants with a deep dive into the economics of the 45Q tax credit, and guidance on how to execute a CCS project in the state of Texas. This event is targeted at facility owners and key business partners across energy, industrial, and fuel pathways who see reducing carbon emissions as both a business opportunity and the right thing to do.

Events were moderated by Patricia Loria, Senior Client Engagement Lead at the Global CCS Institute.
