Kipp Coddington, a chemical engineer and lawyer, has been appointed as director of the Carbon Management Institute at the University of Wyoming.

Coddington, an international expert in regulation and policy that pertain to energy and carbon management, comes to UW after a distinguished career in Washington, D.C., advising fossil and renewable energy companies in addressing some of their most challenging energy, environmental and climate issues. He has guided complex infrastructure projects making beneficial use of carbon dioxide, and monetizing carbon dioxide reductions through market mechanisms.

Early in his career as a chemical engineer working for the federal government, Coddington conducted assessments of dual-use technologies including stealth, nuclear and supercomputing.

“It’s a privilege to come to work for the University of Wyoming,” Coddington says. “Wyoming is a critical energy-producing state, and the university is doing cutting-edge research on key carbon-management technologies. Touching upon topics from geologic sequestration to carbon engineering, carbon management is the type of complex, multidisciplinary issue that the University of Wyoming is uniquely suited to address in the years ahead.”

As one of the Centers of Excellence in UW’s School of Energy Resources (SER), the Carbon Management Institute researches a broad range of solutions to mitigate carbon emission including capture, utilization and storage, as well as advanced conversion technologies.

“We are pleased to have someone of Kipp’s caliber working for us,” SER Director Mark Northam says, noting that Coddington has far-reaching experience and name recognition in the realm of energy regulation and policy. “He brings a wealth of international experience that will help us advance our understanding and effectiveness in the broad area of carbon management.”

Coddington chairs the committee within the International Organization for Standardization that is drafting the world’s first technical standard for carbon dioxide storage during enhanced oil recovery. He also co-led the formation of, and still represents, the North American Carbon Capture and Storage Association, an assembly of senior energy company executives that addresses carbon management topics.

SER provides undergraduate and graduate education, conducts research on existing and emerging industry resources, and disseminates scientific, engineering and economic information to support Wyoming’s near- and long-term energy future.
