The National Energy Technology Laboratory, a unit of the US Department of Energy has just produced a status report on its carbon sequestration program. Seven sequestration ‘partnerships’ have been initiated with the goal of supporting carbon sequestration field tests. A national network of companies and professionals has been established and the NETL has published a carbon sequestration atlas. Current projects include the California Energy Commission’s Westcarb. The Atlas shows CO2 sources, areas of CO2 storage potential and coal bed methane fields.
