Shannon Angielski, Principal and Executive Director of the Carbon Utilization Research Council, highlighted the importance of carbon management during a Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources hearing focused on the development of carbon removal technologies in the United States yesterday.
“International authorities recognize that fossil fuels will continue to be used both here in the United States and globally,” Angielski said. “It is how we manage the carbon dioxide produced from the use of fossil fuels that will determine whether we can cost effectively meet mid-century emissions reductions goals and simultaneously enable all nations to benefit from economic growth and energy security.”
During the hearing Alaska Senator, Lisa Murkowski, introduced the CREATE Act, a new bipartisan bill that she is cosponsoring with Senators Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.
