Carbon Capture Co-Benefits

Carbon Capture’s Role in Removing Pollutants and Reducing Health Impacts

This first-of-a-kind study quantifies the health impacts of the co-benefits of reducing other air pollutants by installing carbon capture technologies at representative facilities for seven industrial and power sectors across 10 regions in the United States. Installing these technologies designed to capture carbon dioxide emissions from industrial and power facilities has the potential to result in billions of annual health benefits nationwide. The benefits included reductions in adult and infant mortality, asthma exacerbations, and overall costs of lowering risks of all health categories.
