Situated northeast of San Francisco, the Montezuma Carbon project holds the potential to capture and store (sequester) millions of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually from neighboring power plants and industrial facilities. Trihydro is supporting Montezuma
Carbon in preparing and submitting essential permits and technical documents to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9. The Class VI Carbon Sequestration UIC well permit application was submitted by Trihydro in 2023. To complete the
application, Trihydro worked with other members of the Montezuma project team, including UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Svante, and Kiewitt Engineering.
Trihydro is also in charge of designing the surface and near-surface baseline monitoring programs encompassing the atmosphere, vegetation, soil gas, and groundwater at the project site. In addition to these core responsibilities, Trihydro actively assists
Montezuma Carbon in pursuing U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) grant funding, and is preparing the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Site/Project certification application.
