Description

Louisiana State University intends to evaluate the feasibility of building a DAC hub in Louisiana that would remove CO2 already in the atmosphere and permanently store it. The Pelican consortium includes the University of Houston, Shell, and Mitsubishi Corporation, which announced its participation in April 2024.

Shell US Gas & Power is leading the overall engineering and deployment as part of the project.

The project aims to eliminate 1 million tons of CO2 annually through DAC and underground storage.

The US Department of Energy awarded a grant for the project feasibility study in 2023.
