CO2 Building Blocks:  

Assessing CO2 Utilization Options

Janet Gellici, Chief Executive Officer, National Coal Council 
Wednesday, October 12, 2016 ~ 2-3 pm Eastern

With the release of its new report, “CO2 Building Blocks: Assessing CO2 Utilization Options”, the National Coal Council (NCC) adds to its body of work on carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCS/CCUS). 
There is a growing consensus amongst industry, environmental groups, and governments that CCUS technologies for all fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, oil) will have to be deployed to achieve climate objectives in the U.S. and globally. Why? Population and income are driving increased demand for energy. Global electrification continues, and more than half of the increase in global energy consumption is for power generation. The world will continue to rely on abundant, secure, and affordable fossil fuels. Without CCUS, as NCC noted in prior reports, it is highly improbable that global CO2 emissions reduction goals will be met. Further, the projected costs of achieving these goals without CCUS will be much higher – 70 to 138 percent more expensive.

The U.S. enhances its chance of success in meeting CO2 emission reduction goals when it commits with urgency to the deployment of CCS technologies. That commitment begins with policies and incentives to level the playing field for CCUS.  Upon this level foundation, the building blocks of CO2 utilization can be constructed to expedite reduction of CO2 emissions.

Join us as Janet Gellici provides an overview of the findings and recommendations of NCC’s “CO2 Building Blocks” report to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, and addresses these questions: 

What’s driving the increasing demand for CO2 utilization technologies and products?
What is the status of various CO2 utilization technologies and which are most promising?
How can we best evaluate the available CO2 utilization technologies/products?
Can CO2 utilization technologies/products incentivize the deployment of CCUS?

The National Coal Council provides advice and recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Energy on general policy matters relating to coal and the coal industry. The NCC is a Federal Advisory Committee organized under FACA legislation, and was chartered in 1984.


The American Coal Council’s Coal Q&A Program provides a forum to address critical issues affecting the U.S. coal industry ~ including coal producers, consumers and transporters.  Each program begins with a topic briefing by a leading industry analyst or representative, followed by a Q&A session.
