CEQ Seeks Applicants for CCUS Permitting Task Forces
As required by the Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act, the White House's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is seeking additional member nominations from a diverse range of qualified candidates to serve on the “Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) Federal Lands and Outer Continental Shelf Permitting Task Force” (Federal and OCS Task Force) and “Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) Non-Federal Lands Permitting Task Force” (Non-Federal Task Force).
"These are important opportunities to support and provide insights, expertise, and experiences to these Task Forces to help deploy CCUS. It should also be noted that there is keen interest in Tribal participation. I highly recommend taking the time to nominate or self-nominate and potentially have a seat at the table" said USEA Program Director Mike Moore, speaking to the utility of potentially serving on one of the Task Forces.
CEQ must receive nominations by January 27, 2023 and vacancies are expected to be filled by February 17, 2023.
