SB 1101: Carbon sequestration – Geologic Carbon Sequestration Group

SB 1101 (Caballero) Would require the Air Resources Board to establish a Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage Program to accelerate the development of new technologies to capture and sequester carbon dioxide emissions from industrial and commercial facilities. It further specifies that free “pore space” (the tiny but cumulatively voluminous spaces underground between soil or mineral grains) can be used for the storage of gaseous or liquid substances.
