FREE, OPEN FORUM WITH Q&A
The EPA, industry, and landfills are under an emissions microscope feeling greater pressure to measure and minimize greenhouse gas emissions. There is a wide range of carbon sequestration solutions in the marketplace; most break down into two categories geologic and biologic. Biologic carbon (CO2) sequestration encourages plant growth to remove CO2. It is a logical solution, but not fast enough to provide advantages that landfills and industry need now.
Ray Huff and Monte Markey provide a “birds-eye view” of the CO2 sequestration marketplace, how it works, and the options relevant to landfills. Ray and Monte will discuss geologic carbon sequestration using deep well injection during SCS’s January forum.
Sessions are interactive with Q&A throughout and in the last quarter of the time allotted. As always, these are non-commercial, and your privacy is protected. Anyone who RSVPs will receive the recorded video following our live session.

California’s AB 32 legislation has proven to be one of the most successful legislation in the U.S. regarding statewide efforts to reduce GHG emissions. This has been started with the implementation of the early action measures stated in the Scoping Plan, which included early regulations to reduce GHG emissions in many different industry sectors, and then moved to the establishment of the MRP and C&T programs, which have created incentives for facilities to reduce their GHG emissions. The nine early action measures have been documented to reduce California’s GHG emissions with an estimated reduction of 13.16 percent from 1990 emissions in the year 201813. As a result of these programs’ implementations, California has met its goal to reach 1990 emissions levels by 2020 and had done so by 2016, four years before its proposed target year.
With the continued implementation of new programs at the state, local, and federal level, growing economic incentives to reduce emissions, and drive that led to the success of the emissions reduction goals of AB32, California is on a very promising path to achieving its latest goals to combat climate change.
