Expanding the Industrial Decarbonization Toolkit

The industrial sector is on a path to becoming the highest-emitting sector in the US in the early 2030s, pointing to the critical need to rapidly deploy decarbonization solutions if the US is to achieve meaningful economy-wide decarbonization.


The Economic Benefits of Direct Air Capture Hubs

The Department of Energy has announced two direct air capture hubs: the South Texas DAC Hub in Texas and Project Cypress in Louisiana. In this analysis, we quantify the economic and job benefits associated with these two announced DAC hub projects.
