Field Hearing: The Future of Advanced Carbon Capture Research and Development Subcommittee on Energy of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology United States House of Representatives.

Friday, November 22, 2019
​Hilton University of Houston Waldorf Astoria Ballroom, Houston, TX 

The hearing focused on the future of advanced research and development on carbon capture. Expert witnesses spoke on how this important technology works and what the US federal government can do to make smarter investments and assist in developments, while addressing the challenges to reduce carbon emissions.

From Jenvey testimony: "We now understand that CCUS is a versatile carbon solution, in that it can greatly reduce CO2 emissions from existing energy, industrial infrastructure, and the atmosphere. However, since there is no panacea for CO2 capture technology to address all CO2 emissions, a diversified technology program is therefore needed."
