Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP)

The Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP) is part of Montana State University’s Energy Research Institute. The partnership is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy as one of seven regional carbon sequestration partnerships. Our team engages key stakeholders to help determine or identify the best approaches for permanently storing regional carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. BSCSP relies on existing technologies from the fields of engineering, geology, chemistry, biology, geographic information systems (GIS) and economics to develop novel approaches for both geologic and terrestrial carbon storage in our region. The BSCSP region encompasses Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, South Dakota, eastern Washington and Oregon.

What We Do

BSCSP works with our partners to research and develop novel approaches for both terrestrial and geologic carbon storage in the Big Sky region that support efficient use of our energy resources. Our team combines top level science, cutting-edge technology, and lessons learned to store CO2 safely and foster clean energy solutions. Our work is accomplished through paper studies, field-based research, computer modeling, data analysis, small-scale pilot projects and large-scale demonstration projects. BSCSP relies on the fields of engineering, geology, chemistry, biology, policy, geographic information systems (GIS) and economics to successfully meet project goals.

BSCSP is also dedicated to improving public understanding and acceptance of carbon storage technologies and tracking state and federal regulatory policies related to carbon storage. We have a robust outreach and education program and engage with a wide variety of stakeholders.
