Carbon Dioxide Pipelines for Carbon Sequestration: Emerging Policy Issues (2007)

Congressional Research Service, April 2007. Parfomak, Paul W., Folger, Peter. The Congressional Research Service (CRS) published this report in April 2007 for Members of Committees of Congress. The report summarizes new and emerging policy issues related to carbon capture and sequestration (CCS).

Congress is examining potential approaches to reducing manmade contributions to global warming from U.S. sources. One approach is carbon capture andsequestration (CCS) — capturing CO2 at its source (e.g., a power plant) and storing it indefinitely (e.g., underground) to avoid its release to the atmosphere. A common requirement among the various techniques for CCS is a dedicated pipeline network for transporting CO2 from capture sites to storage sites.
