Multistate partnership to study carbon captureadmin
Then U.S. Energy Department awarded $61.1 million to a multistate environmental partnership to research new ways to capture and store carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
The Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership project, working with Columbus, Ohio-based Battelle Memorial Laboratories, will test ways to store the gases in underground geological formations, and in land occupied by crops and forests. It is one of seven such projects in the U.S.
The partnership includes the states of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and Michigan.
