The Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative aims to expand the state’s pipeline infrastructure and help energy companies transport carbon dioxide for use in oil and gas development.
The researchers hope to eventually store millions of tons of carbon dioxide underground.
Established under the Obama administration, the Clean Power Plan regulated greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the nation’s second-largest source of planet-warming gas. But in 2019, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency replaced this plan with a new rule designed to protect the coal industry while backing away from emissions reductions. Whereas the Clean Power Plan was expected to reduce emissions by about 30% by 2030, EPA projections suggest the replacement rule might reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 0.7%, or possibly not at all.
"Deciding to stay here has had me thinking about what Wyoming will be like in the future with the way we are digging up coal, oil, gas, and fossil fuels," Amber Rouse says.
The company plans to continue its operations in the Rocky Mountain Region, and maintain employees during the bankruptcy.
Imagine a noisy, crowded bar. Music is pounding, and people are clustered close together, talking loudly or even shouting to be heard. If it's cold out, doors and windows are shut tight and the heat is on, or if it's hot out, everything is shut and the air conditioner is recirculating the air.
Scientists Dr. Kunlei Liu and Heather Nikolic at the University of Kentucky plan to bring their latest carbon capture research to Wyoming's Integrated Test Center. Here's what to expect.

In the race to respond to shifting market pressures, Wyoming lawmakers and energy experts have been on the hunt for solutions to save the state's ailing coal industry. Many consider advancements in carbon capture, or the trapping and reusing of carbon dioxide, as one part of the solution.
BISMARCK, N.D. — A North Dakota ethanol company is preparing to store its carbon dioxide emissions underground and the state's coal-fired comp…
A consultant and the university will study the economics and technology behind trapping carbon dioxide at the Dave Johnston power plant in Glenrock and the Naughton power plant in Kemmerer.
The federal government plans to unlock roughly 500,000 more acres of federal land for mineral development in northern Wyoming, despite protests from conservation groups that increased coal mining will exacerbate climate change.
Yellowstone Caldera Chronicles is a weekly column written by scientists and collaborators of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. This week's contribution is from Jennifer Lewicki, research geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, CA.
The initiative stretches back almost eight years ago, when then-Gov. Matt Mead announced plans to expand the state's energy pipelines.
Scientists are working to make the biofuel process more efficient and thus reduce carbon dioxide emissions and mitigate climate change.
