Overview
This is a project grant for the Clean Air Task Force (CATP) to supplement their work to promote carbon capture and storage (CCS) through enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Specifically the project will focus on whether there is a role for tax exempt financing to promote capturing CO2 from power plants and using it for EOR in older existing wells. If CATF determines there is a role, they will quantify what impact the financing will have on federal revenues. CCS through EOR serves two key purposes: it allows grantees to work with fossil fuel interests on carbon policy, and it serves to test the proposition that CCS can be brought to scale at a reasonable cost.

for general operating support  
The Clean Air Task Force (CATF) focuses on mitigating CO2 through promoting policies that include Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), low-carbon energy innovation, high-penetration renewable energy integration, and nuclear power. CATF also focuses on high potency pollutants like methane and black carbon. They are one of the lead groups engaged in the EPA’s rule requiring new coal fired power plants to be equipped with CCS, and are playing a leading role in advocating for CCS in China.
