The Wyoming Rock Springs Uplift could potentially store 14 to 17 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), according to results from a Department of Energy-sponsored study. This is equal to 250 to 300 years’ worth of CO 2 emissions produced by the Wyoming’s coal-fired power plants and other large regional anthropogenic CO 2 sources at current emission levels.
