Fossil fuel producers, users, and other greenhouse gas emitters are actively seeking ways to reduce and manage emissions due to concerns about climate change. One strategy that is gaining momentum is carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). The Federal IRS tax credit program, under Section 26 U.S. Code § 45Q, provides lucrative incentives to encourage the adoption of CCUS initiatives. The increasing prominence of CCUS initiatives signifies a paradigm shift in how industries approach environmental stewardship. Reducing emissions is no longer seen merely as a regulatory compliance measure but as a strategic opportunity to shape a sustainable and economically viable future.
Trihydro provides comprehensive Carbon Sequestration Solutions (CSS) expertise for companies looking to assess, implement, and manage a variety of CSS projects and assets. Our team's CSS project portfolio includes active engagements in multiple Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regions and various primacy states, and a subset of these projects are also pursuing California Air Resources Board (CARB) site/project certifications.

Project Economics and Feasibility

Trihydro CSS professionals have real-world experience in supporting evaluations of project economics by providing technical training and assisting decision-makers in weighing capital costs and operational expenses against cash flow potential.

Designing and Executing Stratigraphic, Injection, and Deep Monitor Wells

Our CSS team guides you through each project step, from engineering design and cost analysis to testing and operating injection and monitoring wells. We can also support the strategic placement of stratigraphic wells to assess geologic viability and optimize your project's foundation.

Testing and Monitoring

Trihydro designs, implements, and manages surface, near surface, and deep baseline environmental testing and monitoring (BETM) programs with remote monitoring telemetry and supports ongoing monitoring associated with aquifers, ecosystem/vegetation stress, and the soil/vadose zone.

Data Management and Reporting

Our environmental data management software solution, EnFlection®, helps organize and streamline data processes and reporting requirements for CSS projects. It can be customized for individual CSS projects and facilitates compliance reporting to federal and state agencies

Permitting and Regulations

Trihydro helps clients navigate and implement complex permitting and regulatory processes by staying current with evolving interpretations and applications of the Class VI regulations and guidance materials and maintaining strong working relationships with federal and state regulatory agencies.


EnFlection® is a cloud-based solution for managing environmental project needs and regulatory obligations, including CSS monitoring and reporting data needs. EnFlection® provides environmental staff, CSS project managers, corporate managers, and other designated stakeholders with the tools and capabilities they need to manage CSS monitoring and reporting data effectively.
The team at Trihydro was one of the best project swat teams I’ve ever worked with. They organized and generated an entire class VI CCS permit application in a few months when they normally require over a year to create. Moreover, it was nearly perfect and passed administrative review shortly after submission. They are efficient, knowledgeable, responsive, and very professional. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Class II Injection Wells: Unlocking the Hidden Value of CO2 in Oil & Gas Production

Class II Injection Wells: Unlocking the Hidden Value of CO2 in Oil & Gas Production

Recent advances in carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) have dramatically changed the financial impacts for oil and gas upstream and midstream companies that manage produced CO2. While the attention has primarily been on utilizing Class VI wells for claiming the tax credits, an alternative, and possibly more advantageous option for oil and gas companies, are Class II Injection wells.
Localizing CCUS Projects

Localizing Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Projects

It is anticipated that carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) projects, particularly at ethanol plants, may become more local in scope. Evaluation of whether to pursue a “local” CCUS project often begins with an evaluation of geology, funding sources, and risks.

Class VI UIC Permit
Solano County, California

Trihydro is coordinating the Class VI permitting and the California Air Resources Board Low Carbon Fuel Standard (CARB LCFS) permanence certification for a proposed regional center focused on annually sequestering millions of tons of CO2. Additionally, Trihydro is actively engaged in developing the baseline environmental testing and monitoring program for surface and near-surface project areas.

Class VI UIS Permit and Baseline Monitoring
USEPA Region 7

As part of a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project in USEPA Region 7, Trihydro is preparing and submitting a Class VI Carbon Sequestration well permit application, overseeing the CARB site/project certification package, and conducting continuous baseline testing and monitoring for both shallow subsurface and eco-vegetation survey programs.
