BPC’s Sasha Mackler to Join White House Task Force on CCUS
Washington, DC – The following is a statement from Sasha Mackler, executive director of the Energy Program at the Bipartisan Policy Center, after being named to the White House Council on Environmental Quality’s Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization, and Sequestration Federal Lands and Outer Continental Shelf Permitting Task Force to provide recommendations to the Biden administration on CCUS projects:
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to help the federal government navigate the approval and deployment of carbon sequestration projects. This is an exciting time for carbon capture and direct air capture technologies as they begin to scale to the size necessary to achieve our climate goals.
“As these projects take shape, there will be a multitude of regulatory hurdles to overcome, and the Bipartisan Policy Center believes that we must make the process of safely deploying this infrastructure as clear and efficient as possible if we are to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.”
