Capturing Carbon In Nebraska

Capturing Carbon in NebraskaThe Battelle Memorial Institute and the Great Plains Institute invite you to attend a webinar series, kicking off on May 27, 2020, at 10 AM CST, focused on carbon capture, utilization, and storage opportunities in Nebraska. This three-part webinar series will dive into:
  • Basics about carbon capture technology
  • Specific applications for carbon capture, including ethanol, power plants and other industrial sources
  • Technical and economic considerations for different projects
  • Geology of Nebraska and prospects for geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) and enhanced oil recovery
  • National and regional infrastructure planning initiatives to improve the transportation of CO2 and better connect Nebraska CO2 sources, sinks, and markets
  • Policy drivers for carbon capture, including clean fuels policies, the federal 45Q tax credit, and national infrastructure policy
  • Stakeholder-led carbon capture initiatives in other states
The webinar series is co-hosted by the Nebraska Conservation and Survey Division, Nebraska Ethanol Board, Nebraska Public Power District, Regional Deployment Initiative, and Renewable Fuels Nebraska.
Carbon capture, utilization, and storage present numerous economic and environmental benefits for Nebraska. For ethanol plants, it offers economic value for a waste product and add value in clean fuels markets. For power plants, it can aid in decarbonization efforts and offer grid assets as the energy system transforms over time. Through carbon capture, Nebraska can spur the development of new industries including carbon dioxide (CO2) enhanced oil recovery, direct air capture, and synthetic fuels and products from CO2. As our country shifts focus toward economic recovery from COVID-19 in the coming weeks and months, these economic opportunities are more important than ever before.

Webinar #1 The Basics of Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage

On May 27, 2020, 10:00-11:30 AM CST will cover the basics of carbon capture, utilization, and storage on a national and regional level. Additionally, speakers will touch on how this market has been impacted by COVID-19 as well as how ethanol and carbon capture are being considered in federal economic recovery proposals. Specific topics include:
  • Carbon Capture 101
  • Maps and sources
  • Background on the Integrated Midcontinent Stacked Carbon Storage Hub led by Battelle Memorial Institute, funded through the Carbon Storage Assurance and Feasibility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) program
