California has enacted ambitious climate goals, including a statewide carbon neutrality target by 2045. While much of the required greenhouse gas reductions will come from clean technology and emission reduction programs, meeting these targets will necessitate new methods of actively removing carbon from the atmosphere and capturing difficult-to-mitigate emissions, including via technologies broadly known as engineered carbon removal.
- Establishing a state single point of contact for engineered carbon removal project incentives, permitting, and oversight.
- Identifying project and infrastructure corridors best suited for new development to conduct pre-permitting environmental, land use, and community review.
- Developing CEQA guidelines specific to carbon removal projects.
- Considering extension of and adjustment of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard’s carbon capture protocol to support project financing.
