for an integrated carbon capture, utilization, and storage program  
The Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines seeks to educate leaders, develop innovative policy, and build momentum for carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS). The world’s top climate scientists agree that CCUS will be necessary to achieve a net-zero greenhouse gas economy. The passage of federal climate legislation is driving new public and private investments to CCUS technologies. With deep expertise in subsurface reservoir science and engineering, chemical and mechanical systems, environmental engineering, and policy and economic analysis, the School of Mines is uniquely positioned to identify pathways to scale emerging technologies and develop complementary policy frameworks through collaboration with state, tribal, and community stakeholders, all while maintaining a global perspective on the issues surrounding energy and policy.

for an integrated carbon capture, utilization, and storage program  
Support to the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines helps build a center of excellence on carbon capture, utilization, and storage. The institute will expand its capacity to incorporate carbon capture in climate models, as well as develop protocols for techno-economic systems analysis of carbon capture applications. It will research and develop new technologies for carbon capture, and around carbon utilization and storage. Finally, the institute will focus on policy research that will include carbon pricing, industrial carbon capture, and project-specific economic analysis for policymakers.
