The article reports that the Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) in Grand Forks, North Dakota has been awarded a US$67 million federal cooperative agreement to accelerate a regional program that is determining the best ways to manage carbon emissions in the U.S. through carbon dioxide sequestration. The program will last for up to ten years and help demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of using the technology to manage greenhouse gases.
