Watch: A new tax credit may boost carbon capture and sequestration tech

A recently passed tax credit is being offered to U.S. fossil fuel companies that capture and re-use their CO2 emissions. Called “45Q,” it gives between $35-50 per ton for CO2 buried or reused with no limits on how much can be earned. Analysts expect 45Q to “unleash” private sector investment, accelerating the growth of carbon capture and sequestration tech. Critics see no net gain to reusing carbon that will be burned anyway, and some express fears it could send the cost of electricity soaring. Will 45Q really boost technological growth in fossil fuels? Or just encourage fossil fuel use?
