in support of Clean Age (Enhancing Growth and Development through Energy) Asia The initiative was led by Jeffrey R. Pyatt and Stephen Gardner, chief counsel for the Commerce Department’s Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP), jointly announced the launch. Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage: Handbook for Policymakers, This handbook, sponsored by ENR and developed by CLDP, is a guide to empower legislators, ministries, regulators and state-owned companies to adopt and implement legal instruments that expand carbon capture, utilization and storage capabilities rapidly and effectively. Will deploy properly. The Handbook was created in close collaboration with experts from U.S. government agencies, foreign governments, multilateral organizations, industry, civil society, and academia.

In addition to full-scale mitigation efforts, the Administration has indicated that meeting global climate ambitions will require the responsible deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies. CCUS has an important role in industrial sectors where addressing emissions is challenging. Similarly, CDR can help offset emissions that cannot be addressed by removing carbon dioxide from ambient air. The United States and its partners are now working to help countries adopt CCUS policies, mobilize financing, deploy CCUS technologies, and improve laws and regulations to attract responsible CCUS investments.

The Departments of State and Commerce encourage government policymakers and regulators to use the Handbook and implement its recommendations as they pursue their climate and energy goals. The Handbook is a starting point for understanding the policies, regulations, and best practices that countries can adopt and implement to accelerate the deployment of CCUS.

ENR and CLDP will also leverage this guide to expand foreign technical assistance programming, supporting countries seeking advisory services on CCUS. The English version of the Handbook, along with upcoming editions of the Handbook in other languages ​​and other helpful resources on CCUS, can be found online at: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) Resources | Commercial Law Development Program (doc.gov)
