New Orleans, LA Regional Carbon Management Applicant Education Workshop

Join the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (DOE-FECM) outside of New Orleans, LA for the second of our Regional Carbon Management Applicant Education Workshops. These workshops support implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and will target potential applicants interested in developing commercial-scale storage facilities, point-source CO2 capture demonstration projects, direct air capture hubs, hydrogen production hubs with carbon capture and storage (CCS), carbon utilization, and CO2 transport that will be required by these BIL provisions and support decarbonization.
DOE will address various components of large-scale projects such as capture of CO2 from point sources and the atmosphere; commercial storage and transport of carbon dioxide; developing teams for integrated projects; DOE procurement requirements and processes; NEPA requirements and processes; lessons learned from past demonstration projects; alternate opportunities for carbon management; environmental justice and community engagement requirements; energy jobs; partnering with Tribal Nations; regulatory requirements; and land and pore space access opportunities.
This three week series of in-person, day-long workshops will bring together stakeholders of large-scale Carbon Management-related infrastructure projects. In addition to New Orleans, in-person events will be held in Columbus, OH on April 13th; and Salt Lake City, UT on April 26th.
