Carnegie Mellon to unveil new sequestration plan
Date:1/9/2009

PITTSBURGH Carnegie Mellon University's M. Granger Morgan will unveil a novel "two-stage'' approach for developing new energy technologies that can help society reduce dangerous greenhouse gas emissions and create a cleaner economy during a policy briefing January 9 at 1 p.m. at 1200 New York Ave. N.W. in Washington, D.C.

Morgan, who heads a team of investigators from Carnegie Mellon, the University of Minnesota, The Vermont Law School and the Washington, D.C.-based energy law firm Van Ness Feldman, will discuss creation of a new regulatory structure for the safe and economical capture, transport and deep geological sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the United States.

With a $1.85 million grant from the New York-based Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF), Morgan and his colleagues in the "CCSReg Project'' argue that if the U.S. is going to put large quantities of CO2 underground in a process called carbon sequestration; the process must be efficient, safe and effective.

"Part of our two-stage process involves creation of an independent Federal Carbon Sequestration Commission, with a chair appointed by new president-elect Obama and 15 expert members from a wide range of public and private stakeholders," said Morgan, head of Carnegie Mellon's Department of Engineering and Public Policy. This commission should carefully study experience with early sequestration projects and make recommendations for the proper form future regulations should take.

In addition to a commission, the 150-page report argues that legal questions about the right to inject CO2 into suitable rock formations over half a mile deep below the surface, must be resolved perhaps through Federal legislation. The report recommends developing regulations for the creation of a widespread commercial-scale carbon sequestration operation in the United States.
