Resources by the Carbon Capture Coalition
- Carbon Capture Coalition comments regarding the proposed regulations for the credit for carbon oxide sequestration under section 45Q of the Internal Revenue Code, most recently amended by section 41119 of Division D of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (BBA), Public Law 115-123, 132 Stat. 64, 162, to encourage the deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage projects (7/31/2020).
- Direct Pay Design Principles for Carbon Capture and the Federal 45Q Tax Credit.
- In June 2020, the Carbon Capture Coalition released a factsheet that illustrates the economic and jobs creation potential associated with the commercialization of carbon capture technologies across sectors. In addition to the factsheet, a project database was created to outline approximately 30 current carbon capture projects in various stages of development.

- The Carbon Capture Coalition submitted comments on June 28, 2019 in response to the Internal Revenue Service request for comments (Notice 2019-32) regarding the implementation of the reformed section 45Q credit for carbon oxide sequestration.
- In June 2019, Coalition participants presented a full tax policy menu to the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees. Drawn from the Blueprint, this broader Coalition menu includes technical improvements and enhancements to the 45Q and 48A tax credits, as well as expanded eligibility for other federal financial incentives to qualify carbon capture along with other low and zero-carbon technologies.

- The Carbon Capture Coalition submitted a cover letter, model guidance and supplementary narrative on geologic storage to the Department of Treasury on November 21, 2018. The model guidance addresses several implementation issues, including credit transferability, contractual assurance, credit recapture, and beginning of construction.
