Energy Daily;3/11/2010, p1
The article presents the findings of a report on the benefits of carbon sequestration on U.S. oil imports and greenhouse gas emission. The report, released by Advanced Resources International (ARI) in March 2010, showed that carbon emissions from utilities and other industrial sectors will yield large volumes of carbon dioxide sufficient to reduce by half U.S. oil imports by 2030. The report also examined a legislation approved by the U.S. House in 2009. The states that would benefit from CO2-enhanced oil recovery (EOR) are cited.
