The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) is advancing a suite of carbon dioxide removal approaches to help the nation achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and support an equitable, decarbonized energy system of the future.
Advancing the carbon dioxide removal industry will help spur innovation and position the United States as a leader in the research and manufacturing of technologies that will be important in the global economy of the 21st century. Carbon dioxide removal is needed to counterbalance emissions associated with the hardest-to-decarbonize sectors (e.g., agriculture, aviation, and shipping) to achieve our net-zero goals, and will ultimately remove legacy carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the atmosphere.
It will also help to create hundreds to thousands of quality rural and industrial jobs across the nation.
