1. Implement the Energy Act of 2020
The bipartisan bill includes several new authorizations for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support low-carbon industrial manufacturing projects. It sets a goal for the Department to fund at least two carbon capture demonstration projects at industrial manufacturing facilities.
2. Diversify carbon capture R&D
The U.S. carbon capture research program is almost exclusively focused on power plant applications, although it has begun to include some industrial sector work. More dedicated research is needed to advance industrial sector applications.
