In October 2009 the University of Utah was awarded a $2,696,556 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for a Carbon Capture and Storage demonstration project.

The DOE's media release stated that More than 1 million tons of CO2 per year will be captured from various industrial sources, compressed, and transported via two new intra-state pipelines for CO2 enhanced oil recovery and deep saline sequestration research in Kansas. Beneath each enhanced oil recovery target, a major saline aquifer spanning most of the State of Kansas will be used for CO2 injection. (DOE Share: $2,696,556)[1]
