Carbon Capture and Storage Presentation

This document is a joint presentation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) focusing on Carbon Management. The presentation emphasizes that Carbon Management is critical for ensuring reliable power in certain regions, aiding in the decarbonization of industries, and counterbalancing emissions from sources that are particularly difficult to decarbonize.

The presentation acknowledges that the potential benefits and risks vary at each stage of Carbon Management. Various federal and state laws apply to these activities, underscoring the regulatory complexity of such endeavors. Importantly, the identification, management, mitigation, and avoidance of environmental risks are highlighted as being highly specific to the project and site. Thus, effective Carbon Management requires thorough consideration of both environmental and legal factors in the context of specific projects and locations.
