Request for Expression of Interest seeks input from stakeholders on Direct Air Capture as Wyoming considers federal funding opportunities

16 Nov 2022


Cheyenne, Wyo – The University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources (SER), together with the Wyoming Business Council (WBC) and the Wyoming Energy Authority (WEA), has released a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEOI) to solicit input from key stakeholders on Direct Air Capture activities and initiatives in Wyoming. 
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Four Regional Clean Direct Air Capture Hubs program, part of the Investment in Infrastructure and Jobs Act, may present an opportunity for Wyoming to create economic growth and resilience by encouraging development in the direct air capture (DAC) industry. DAC is a form of Carbon Capture Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) where ambient air is processed, and the carbon dioxide (CO2) is separated and permanently stored underground, used for enhanced oil recovery, or converted into products. The CO2 capture technology and infrastructure developed in conjunction with DAC may lead to technology innovation and commercialization of other sources of CO2, including coal-fired utility plants.
