Carbon Dioxide Capture & Storage and S. 1733, The Clean Energy Jobs & American Power Act of 2009

The [Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act of 2009][act-link] (CEJAPA) provides a number of provisions that facilitate the demonstration and deployment of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technologies. This document provides a brief overview of the most important of these. Coal use is responsible for over 40 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions[^1], and significant, deliberate action will be required to reduce these emissions. The CEJAPA lays a foundation for moving CCS technology to scale by reducing costs and providing funding for demonstrations.
