About 175 people attended the two-day 2022 MRCI Partners and Stakeholders Meeting event, seeking information on carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) for the 20-state MRCI region and beyond. Attendance at the September meeting surpassed that of any previous meeting held either virtually under the MRCI, or in-person throughout the life of the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (MRCSP) one of the two predecessor programs of the MRCI.
The meeting, held at the Grand Event Center in Columbus, Ohio, just a few miles from Battelle’s headquarters (Battelle co-leads the MRCI along with the Illinois State Geological Survey), boasted a packed agenda covering topics including Managing Risks for CCS Deployment, Regional Projects, Regulatory/Legislative Updates for MRCI States, Carbon Sequestration in the Outer Continental Shelf, and the Significance of Environmental Justice.
