Safely and permanently storing carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere
Across much of our land base in the Southeastern United States, we own the rights to the pore space beneath our timberlands. Some of these areas have high potential to be developed for permanent belowground carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) and help contribute to the global reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — all while continuing to support sustainable forest management on the land above.
The technology for permanent sequestration of carbon in geologic formations has been available for many decades, but recent changes in U.S. law have made the technology more economical to develop and implement. Given the scale and diversity of our land base and our in-house expertise and data, Weyerhaeuser is well-positioned to partner with qualified companies and structure lease agreements to capitalize on these projects and help meet the growing demand for climate solutions.
Our team has experience in land negotiation, geology, geophysics, engineering, prospect generation, GIS applications, data management and more. Our aim is to create leases with qualified companies to develop projects on our land in a sustainable and safe manner.
