Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSPs) help develop the technology, infrastructure, and regulations to implement large-scale CO2 sequestration in different regions and geologic formations in the US. Local organizations and citizens contribute expertise, experience, and perspectives that represent the concerns and desires of a given region, resulting in the development and application of technologies suited to that region. Seven RCSPs represent regions encompassing 97% of coal-fired and industrial CO2 emissions
