Carbon is and will remain a vital part of our economy in the form of energy dense fuels, materials, chemicals, and products. An overview of advances in carbon dioxide capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) will be presented along with along with key questions, remaining challenges, and opportunities, including the nexus of CCUS with renewable energy and efficient interconversion of electrical, chemical, and thermal energy. An overview of the U.S. Carbon Negative Shot will also be presented along with the role of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) in our clean energy transformation.
