The Coalition today endorsed the House version of the Carbon Utilization Act, introduced by Rep. David Young (R-IA) and Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA). Coalition co-director Brad Crabtree (vice president of fossil energy at Great Plains Institute) provided the following statement:

“The Carbon Capture Coalition endorses the Carbon Utilization Act introduced in the U.S. House today by Rep. David Young (R-IA) and Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA). The diverse industry, labor, environmental, agricultural and other participants in the Coalition welcome key provisions in this legislation that will expand the capture, beneficial use and geologic storage of CO2 in the production of renewable fuels, chemicals and biobased products, which will benefit agriculture, rural economies and communities while reducing carbon emissions. We support the efforts of Representatives Young and Peters to secure passage of this important legislation as part of the broader 2018 Farm Bill.”
