Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage is a key technology for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Recent changes to the tax code (45Q) provide a tax credit to power plants and industrial facilities that capture and store CO2 that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. The Stanford Center for Carbon Storage uses a multidisciplinary approach to address critical questions related to flow physics, monitoring, geochemistry, and simulation of the transport and fate of CO2 stored in partially- to fully-depleted oil fields, saline aquifers, and other unconventional reservoirs.
