Wyoming’s effort to develop a commercial-scale carbon capture and storage facility in the Powder River Basin just took another step forward as the CarbonSAFE initiative entered the third phase of development in October.

The goal is to build a facility capable of storing up to 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide to help mitigate emissions from fossil fuels at the 385-megawatt Dry Fork Station, north of Gillette.
