There is unprecedented interest and momentum in carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), carbon management, negative emissions and deep decarbonization worldwide. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine have identified carbon sequestration as one of society’s grand challenges, and multiple national labs and the U.S. Department of Energy have significant ongoing work in the area. Most recently the 116th Congress affirmed the importance of these technologies by authorizing more than $6 billion of CCUS-related spending over 5 years in the Energy Act of 2020.
The Colorado School of Mines is one of the world’s top technical research universities in areas related to energy, natural resources and the environment, and is actively engaged in multiple aspects of the CCUS chain with more than 40 faculty members of the Integrated CCUS Initiative (ICI). The ICI and the Global Energy Future Initiative is excited to highlight this research amid the accelerating pace of activity in the CCUS space and is proud to announce that March is CCUS Month at Mines! Join us for CCUS-related content including webinars, podcast interviews with Colorado businesses doing CCUS, and a showcase of Mines research.
