Yesterday Senator Kerry introduced legislation that would call for research and development of carbon capture and sequestration. The "Carbon Capture and Storage Technology Act of 2007" seeks funding for CCS demonstration projects and calls for the dedication of $2.4 billion per year through 2015 for the power plants and $1.6 billion per year for the sequestration projects. Three to five coal-fired plants would demonstrate the capture of carbon and three to five more would sequester at least 1 million tons of CO2 per year. Two of the sequester projects would store the carbon in deep saline aquifers, while the others would either be in aquifers or oil and gas fields.
