Carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration, the long-term storage of CO2 either in geologic zones deep underground or at the earth’s surface in plants and soils, is emerging as a major strategy to help address climate change concerns. But to be successful, CO2 sequestration projects need to take regional characteristics into account.

The Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership is a collaboration of over 80 U.S. and Canadian stakeholders that is laying the groundwork for practical and environmentally sound CO2 sequestration projects in the heartland of North America.

The PCOR Partnership is led by the Energy & Environmental Research Center at the University of North Dakota and is one of seven regional partnerships under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory's (NETL's) Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (RCSP) Program. NETL and RCSP are part of DOE's Office of Fossil Energy.
