Trump EPA Snubs Carbon Capture, an Emissions Reduction Technique Favored by Environmentalists and Republicans
from The Washington Examiner
The Trump Environmental Protection Agency is dismissing a technology that is favored by many Republicans and is widely considered to be among the most effective at slashing emissions from coal plants. EPA’s Affordable Clean Energy, or ACE, rule, finalized recently to replace President Barack Obama's signature climate change rule, the Clean Power Plan, does not include carbon capture and storage, also known as CCS, in a list of six technologies that utilities can consider to reduce carbon emissions and make their plants more efficient by burning less coal to produce the same amount of electricity.
