Launching Energy Advancement and Development through Innovations for Natural Gas Act of 2019
This bill directs the Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a program for the capture of carbon dioxide produced during the generation of natural gas-generated power.
Specifically, DOE must
- identify opportunities to accelerate the development of commercially viable carbon capture technologies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions;
- enter into cooperative agreements with certain entities to license, permit, construct, and operate at least three facilities to capture carbon dioxide from natural gas generating power facilities; and
- identify any barriers to the commercial development of carbon capture technologies.
