Engineered Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS)

We are part of a growing chorus of advocates and communities around the United States and across the globe condemning Engineered Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS) as an obstacle, not a vehicle, to a climate-safe planet, one that perpetuates fossil fuel dominance and exacerbates harms to frontline communities.

This webinar provides an overview of our latest Engineered Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS) policy platform (available at https://www.calcleanair.org/ccus/) to start a conversation with stakeholders about significant environmental justice concerns with CCUS and includes testimony from impacted community members from the San Joaquin Valley, a region with a historical failure to meet federal health protective standards for air quality.

Engineered carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is being used to delay meaningful climate action and increases our investments in fossil fuel and other hydrocarbon infrastructure at a time when we should be investing in zero emission energy and phasing out fuels that continue to drive the climate crisis and poison frontline communities.

Updated 2022

Engineered carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a means of delaying meaningful climate action and increasing our investments in fossil fuel and other hydrocarbon infrastructure at a time when we should be phasing out these old fuels that continue to drive the climate crisis and poison frontline communities.

June 2022

Engineered carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) technology is a climate dead end on the path to decarbonizing California’s economy and generally increases net carbon emissions.
