Drilling RSU-1Wyoming Carbon Underground Storage Project (WY-CUSP)

The Carbon Management Institute (CMI) currently leads the Wyoming Carbon Underground Storage Project (WY-CUSP), a pioneering three-year research project designed to characterize two potential carbon storage reservoirs (the Weber Sandstone and Madison Limestone, both deep saline aquifers) on the Rock Springs Uplift in southwestern Wyoming. Preliminary estimates suggest that together, these reservoirs could safely store 26 billion tons of CO2 thousands of feet below the closest drinking water aquifers.

RSU-1 in progressUS-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC)

The Carbon Management Institute (CMI) is a founding partner of the US-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC), a U.S. Department of Energy effort to foster collaborative research and development of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology between the U.S. and China. This partnership will accelerate the rapid development of clean coal technology in both countries while forging meaningful relationships between American and Chinese researchers, and advancing U.S. and Chinese leadership in energy technology and innovation.
