National Carbon Capture Conference and Expo, Des Moines

November 8, 2022

Meet SCS Engineers professionals at the National Carbon Capture Conference & Expo, November 8-9, 2022 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Produced by Carbon Capture Magazine and BBI International, the National Carbon Capture Conference & Expo is designed for companies and organizations advancing technologies and policy that support the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from all sources, including fossil fuel-based power plants, ethanol production plants and industrial processes, as well as directly from the atmosphere.

SCS professionals are speaking at the conference, including:

Charles Hostetler is presenting on “Optimize Protection of USDWs – Minimize the Site-Wide False Positive Rate”

Kacey Garber is presenting on “Potential Geochemical Effects of CO2 and Brine Leakage on a Dilute Aquifer and Implications for CCUS Testing and Monitoring Plans”


The National Carbon Capture Conference will focus on research, data, trends and information on all aspects of CCUS with the goal to help companies build knowledge, connect with others, and better understand the market and carbon utilization. Presentation topics will include: Tax Policy; Impact on Carbon Intensity of all Forms of Energy; Required Plant Infrastructure; Environmental Permitting; Pipeline Requirements and Construction; Low Carbon Fuel Markets and Mandates; Project Development; Turning Carbon into Value; New Technologies Driving the Industry; and Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Concrete.

The conference continues to take shape.  For current details and registration information, click here.

What do Climate Change, AB 32, and Ray Huff have in common?

October 22, 2015

GHG_AB32-scs-engineersThe Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, or Assembly Bill (AB) 32, is a California State Law that fights climate change by establishing a comprehensive program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions GHG from all sources throughout the state.  AB 32 is the first state regulatory program in the country to take a comprehensive, long-term approach to addressing climate change. A major component of the program, the Landfill Methane Rule, requires landfill owner/operators to reduce methane emissions through proper operation of landfill gas LFG collection and control systems and collect and report  GHG emissions data in a timely manner. GHG emissions are defined in the AB 32 to include all of the following: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, hydrofluorocarbons, and perfluorocarbons.

SCS is a pioneer in our nation’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions in order to combat global warming. We proactively pursue the development of markets in which major sources of methane (e.g., oil and gas industry, landfills, dairies, etc.) can generate and sell GHG credits by voluntarily installing methane recovery systems and selling the methane as fuel.

Methane is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in terms of its greenhouse effect. Capturing and destroying these emissions can have significant environmental benefits. Simply destroying methane via power generation or sequestration can diminish its GHG potential by 95 percent. Even greater benefits are available if the methane is used as renewable energy in order to offset natural gas or coal-fired power generation.
