"USE IT" Act and Prospects for Innovative Carbon Capture and Use Policy

In March, Senators Barrasso, Capito, Whitehouse, and Heitkamp introduced the "USE IT" Act in committee, which would support R&D for innovative carbon capture and use technologies. This workshop will explore the environmental and economic opportunities for innovative carbon technologies -- including direct air capture and carbon utilization in building materials and fuels. The conversation will include a discussion of the policy landscape for these solutions, as well as the emerging industry and investment trends in the space.
