The Great Plains Institute (GPI) is excited to announce the final results of more than two years of research and modeling on carbon capture and storage opportunities throughout the US. The white paper, Transport Infrastructure for Carbon Capture and Storage: Regional Infrastructure for Midcentury Decarbonization, summarizes our findings and details our analytical approach. The analysis identifies near-term capture and storage opportunities, then designs and plans the regional transport infrastructure required to maximize CO2 abatement while minimizing cost and land use impact. 

In the core study region that included the Midwest, Gulf Coast, Rockies, and Northern Plains, GPI  identified an estimated 360 million tons of CO2 that can be captured per year from 418 industrial and power facilities in the near-and medium-term.
