The details on the project are vague as of July 2010. In October 2009 CEMEX stated that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) had decided to provide $1.14 million to the company, representing 20% of the cost of Phase I of developing the concept of its project. In a media release CEMEX stated that it would work with [[RTI International" and "others to design a dry sorbent CO2 capture and compression system, a pipeline (if necessary), and an injection station. This commercial-scale Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) demonstration project may remove up to 1 million tons of CO2 annually."
