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 the Federal Power Plant Regulation and Policy project
The Clean Air Task Force utilizes research, education, advocacy, and litigation to reduce air pollution. This project seeks to defend the authority of the EPA to address local air pollution and greenhouse gas pollution from power plants. The project will also engage in administrative advocacy to persuade the EPA to address greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants.
for general operating support
The Clean Air Task Force uses expert forums and policy advocacy and engages directly with private sector partners to promote policies that protect public health and promote innovation. Its mission is to accelerate zero carbon energy and other climate-beneficial technologies. The Task Force is focusing its efforts on promoting carbon capture use and storage in the United States and China. This grant is related to our work in the coal sector.
