07 Feb BPC Action Commends the Senate USE IT Act in Energy and Environment
BPC Action released the following statement on the Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act:
“BPC Action commends Sens. John Barrasso (R-WY) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) for introducing the Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act.
This bill is needed to build on recently enacted investments in carbon capture to continue important innovation in this space, reduce emissions and maintain America’s energy leadership. Carbon utilization and direct air capture are at the forefront of American innovation and critical to not only addressing carbon pollution but also expanding opportunities for American businesses in emerging technology sectors.
Importantly, the USE IT Act supports the buildout of enabling carbon dioxide pipeline infrastructure critical to deploying these technologies to a point where American businesses can seize the economic opportunities afforded by them. As the global appetite for clean technologies grows, the United States has an opportunity to reassert its competitive edge by pioneering the technologies of tomorrow, and the USE IT Act helps us get there.”
