Innovation & Inclusive Growth: Mines

May 8, 2023

Mines and carbon credit buying are two distinct topics related to carbon emissions and climate change. Let me explain each of them and also discuss 45Q.

Mines: Mines, especially coal mines, are significant sources of carbon emissions. When coal is burned for energy, it releases large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. To reduce the emissions from mines, various technologies such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be used to capture the carbon dioxide before it is released into the atmosphere. Carbon Credit Buying: Carbon credit buying is a market-based approach to reducing carbon emissions. Companies or organizations that emit carbon dioxide can buy carbon credits from other organizations or projects that reduce carbon emissions. These projects can include renewable energy, reforestation, or energy efficiency initiatives. The idea is that by buying carbon credits, companies can offset their carbon emissions by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions elsewhere.

45Q: 45Q is a tax credit program in the United States that aims to incentivize the deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies. The program provides tax credits to companies that capture carbon dioxide from industrial processes, such as power plants or industrial facilities, and either store it underground or use it for other purposes, such as enhanced oil recovery. The program was expanded in 2018 and provides a higher tax credit for carbon capture projects that store carbon dioxide permanently underground. The goal of the program is to reduce carbon emissions by promoting the deployment of CCS technologies.
