The projects are part of a national initiative to develop “clean coal” technology through carbon capture and storage (CCS).  The development of CCS technology enables industries to emit fewer greenhouse gases while reusing the captured CO2.

Among the projects is one in Port Arthur, TX, which uses retrofit steam methane reformers to separate carbon dioxide from the process gas stream, sending it to enhanced oil recovery projects.Full story.
