Indiana Could Lead Future CCS Deployment

Indiana, the state which ranks third in the nation in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, has the potential to reduce their industrial emissions and employ their high geologic potential for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects. Researchers at the Indiana Geological and Water Survey are utilizing the organization’s 187 years of experience to understand the feasibility of CCS at many sites in the state. The survey helped to establish the first commercial scale CCS project – the Illinois Basin Decatur Project – and now has their sights set on expanding the practice as more projects emerge and are permitted by the EPA to store CO2 permanently underground.
