EFI – CO2-Secure Report Launch
A federal carbon procurement program is gaining momentum as a pathway to large-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR). The Energy Futures Initiative’s (EFI) latest report, CO2-Secure: A National Program to Deploy Carbon Removal at Gigaton Scale, outlines a federal program for scaling CDR in the United States. CO2-Secure builds from two proposed pieces of legislation, the Federal Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act and the Carbon Removal and Emissions Storage Technologies Act, either of which could act as a precursor pilot program for CO2-Secure.
To launch a discussion on CO2-Secure, EFI is hosting experts and influencers in the CDR space, including EFI CEO Ernest J. Moniz and Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY 20th District), who will initiate the session. EFI staff will follow with key report takeaways, a panel discussion with other CDR experts, and a Q&A period.
If you are interested in climate policy, join us from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (ET) on December 8, 2022, in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center’s South Congressional Meeting Room (CVC 217). The session is free, but you must register to attend. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
