Rubin makes recommendations as member of CA CCS Panel

Rubin, EPP and Mech E Professor and Alumni Professor of Environmental Engineering and Science is helping to guide California's policy on the long-term geologic storage of carbon dioxide to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Rubin is a member of the California Carbon Capture and Storage Review Panel, which recommended that California agencies recognize regulated carbon capture and storage as a measure that can safely and effectively reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and other facilities in the state.
