Carbon capture was first deployed at commercial scale in 1972, when COwas captured from natural gas processing and used for enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) in West Texas.  In a largely unheralded example of American innovation, U.S. industry has led the world over nearly a half-century in successfully demonstrating large-scale carbon capture across a range of industries, including natural gas processing, fertilizer production, gasification, ethanol fermentation, refinery hydrogen production and coal-fired power generation.
