The Department of Energy released the North American Carbon Storage Atlas May 1, showing potential sites throughout the country where CO2 could be captured from power plants and industrial sources and stored underground for the next 500 years. According to the report, which was developed with climate specialists across the continent, there are approximately 2,250 large CO2-emitting stationary sources in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The reportʼs most conservative estimate is a potential storage capacity of 136 billion MT CO2 at oil and gas fields, 65 billion MT at coal fields; and more than 1.7 trillion MT within saline reservoirs.
