The State Carbon Capture Work Group is hosting four separate webinars in November and December, bringing together experts and signatories to review analyses, highlight current CO2 transport infrastructure projects, provide Class VI updates and discuss a strategy for developing recommendations for an action plan.
CO2 transport infrastructure development is a necessary component to meeting U.S. midcentury climate goals and a mechanism for bolstering regional jobs and economies. Seven states – Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Wyoming – have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) showcasing their commitment to the development of CO2 transport infrastructure and the establishment of an action plan which provides state and regional policy recommendations to ensure the deployment of CO2 transport infrastructure.
Individual calendar invitations with call-in details will be available for each webinar.
