Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership
Maryland Geological Survey is a member of the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership in cooperation with the Power Plant Research Program and Maryland Energy Administration. The MRCSP has been established to assess the technical and economic potential, as well as public acceptability of carbon sequestration within its region. The MRCSP region currently consists of seven states making up a contiguous seven-state region: Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Michigan. A group of leading universities, state geological surveys, non-governmental organizations and private companies, headed by Battelle Memorial Institute, has been assembled to carry out this effort. The MRCSP completed a two-year phase 1 project between October 2003 and September 2005 with 66% ($1.6 million) of the total funding from the DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
