The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed new minimum Federal requirements under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) for underground injection of carbon dioxide (CO2) for the purpose of geologic sequestration (GS). The elements of this rulemaking are based on the existing Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program regulatory framework, creating a Class VI well classification that addresses the unique nature of CO2 injection for GS. This rule will help to ensure consistency in permitting underground injection of CO2 at GS operations across the United States. The requirements are designed to prevent endangerment of underground sources of drinking water (USDWs) in anticipation of the eventual use of GS to reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. This Geologic CO2 Sequestration Technology and Cost Analysis document (Technology and Cost document) describes the unit costs of specific technologies and operating practices that are expected to apply to GS activities.
