The tax credit awarded companies for CO2 captured and durably stored was raised from $50 to $180 per tonne.  For CO2 captured and utilized (concrete, carbonation, oil extraction, etc.), the increase was from $35 to $130 per tonne.  Minimum capture to claim the credits is reduced to 1,000 tonnes / year.  Smaller projects can receive direct pay for the full value of the credits for the projects 1st 5 years.  Also, the deadline to build eligibale facilities ws extended 7 years.  The Act also provides $2.15 billion for low-carbon buildings and use of low-carbon materials.  This benefits companies such as CarbonCure and CarbonBuilt,which incorporate captured CO2 into building materials.
