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.

Grants to this Grantee
for scoping effective implementation of new legislation  
This grant to the Clean Air Task Force will enable a network of organizations to develop a plan to support the responsible build-out of low- and zero-carbon technologies, consistent with the federal government’s decarbonization goals to reduce emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and to reach net zero emissions by 2050. The plan will consider how to document and communicate the ways these projects benefit communities, such as the creation of high-paying local jobs and strengthening community tax bases. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy).
for general operating support  
Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a global nonprofit organization working to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies. CATF embraces a pragmatic and non-ideological approach in its advocacy for accelerated commercialization of a range of low-carbon technologies, including carbon capture and storage, hydrogen, renewable energy, and nuclear power.
