Karpus talks replacing carbon in industry
EPP’s Valerie Karplus spoke with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about how companies might find carbon alternatives amid the passing of national legislation that earmarks $5 billion for methods like hydrogen and carbon capture. “Each secondary industry has an opportunity to figure out where the carbon is in their processes and kind of think through what changes are needed to reduce that carbon,” she says.
Team builds tools, innovations to support federal investment
With major investments in infrastructure and innovation pending, a multi-disciplinary initiative lead by EPP’s Erica Fuchs is building the tools and innovations to inform government decisions.
