Carbon Sequestration
Breakout Session A - 10:45 am to 11:45 am
Carbon capture seeks to trap carbon dioxide produced by industrial activity and store it in a way that it is unable to affect the atmosphere. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage have been the subject of several legislative efforts over the past few years; however, the prospect of carbon dioxide pipelines traversing the State has been met with opposition.

Don’t miss this informative segment that offers several perspectives on carbon sequestration, as well as an update on current and proposed legislation.
