U-W Involved In Carbon Sequestration

Laramie, Wy –
The Institute for Energy Research at the University of Wyoming is involved in the development of a process called Carbon Sequestration. The idea is to make Wyoming a player in the energy economy of the Greenhouse age. Institute Director Dag Nummedahl says the overall purpose is to put Carbon Dioxide emissions somewhere besides the atmosphere. Nummedahl adds that they are exploring other storage options as well. A further test of the process will take place at the Teapot Dome oil field near Casper.
