Opinion: Path to a carbon neutral future is through the Texas Railroad Commission

Texas must remain a global leader in affordable and reliable energy, but this ambition must also include a commitment to a carbon neutral future and a reduction in the carbon dioxide emissions driving climate change. There is a misguided narrative that increasing energy output while lowering emissions is in conflict. With the transformative technology of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), we have a solution and a pathway to achieving carbon neutrality. And this pathway can be enabled and accelerated by allowing the Texas Railroad Commission to assume the regulatory authority and stewardship for our state.

Chevron announces investment in Carbon Clean CO2 capture technology business

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. announced it has made a new investment in Carbon Clean, a global leader in cost-effective industrial carbon capture. The size and cost of installing carbon capture technology has been a barrier to adoption. Carbon Clean’s technology is designed to reduce the costs and physical footprint required for carbon capture compared with many existing approaches. Carbon Clean’s technology and fully modular construction also aims to reduce site disruption and facilitate faster permitting.
