New study shows CCUS potential at Wyoming coal-fired power plants


The US Department of Energy has completed a carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) study for several Wyoming coal-fuelled power plants, highlighting significant benefits for such technologies.

Released yesterday, the study had a goal to evaluate the potential opportunities for retrofitting existing power plants with CCUS technology, the economic impact, and the CO2 emissions reductions for the state compared to alternatives.

“We are in a critical time for energy policy and production. Wyoming can help lead in developing and support advantages that boost our coal industry and reduce carbon emissions,” said Governor Mark Gordon.
