Report urges U.S. to increase combination of carbon capture and storage with enhanced oil recovery to increase domestic oil production while curbing emissions of carbon dioxide.
The University of Texas at Austin will receive up to $19 million to design and monitor a carbon capture and storage demonstration project that will take CO2 from a coal-fired power plant and inject it deep underground. It will be among only a handful of other carbon capture and storage tests around the world using human-made CO2.
