In response to numerous inquiries regarding the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 and the 45Q tax credit, which incentivizes the use of carbon capture and storage, faculty from the Center for Energy Studies, the LSU Department of Environmental Sciences, and the LSU Cain Department of Chemical Engineering have developed a brief document that describes the nature of CO2, defines utilization and storage, identifies risks involved in the process, and explains why the Gulf Coast region is being considered for CCUS.
