Haroun Mahgerefteh, a member of our Advisory Council, is one of the authors of the Carbon Dioxide Utilization Markets and Infrastructure report which has recently been published. The study was mandated by the U.S. Congress in the Energy Act of 2020, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, and is administered by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The two-part report, authored by invited global experts, is intended to inform the U.S. Department of Energy and private sector investments in research, demonstration and deployment.
The first report has been briefed to the US congressional staff and leadership at the Department of Energy, who are using it for drafting future legislation and research and funding plans for Carbon Utilization Infrastructure deployment in the US. Haroun’s’ contribution dealt with the CO2 transportation aspects. The report is publicly available for free at the National Academies Press website.CCS Reports
