Have you ever heard about Carbon Capture Technology? What if I tell you that investing in those projects could be one way to help the environment and reduce your tax burden. In this week’s episode, Dr. Eric N. Shelly and I get into the weeds on carbon capture. We talk about the environmental impact of this technology and how investing in this technology is beneficial to your bottom line with tax savings as well as cash flow. Eric talks about different ways that this technology impacts us and our environment through carbon capture and sequestration which decreases greenhouse gas and enhanced oil recovery decreasing the number of oil wells that need to be drilled. Our government wants private investors to provide these services and provides significant tax benefits against W-2 income. 

Dr. Eric is an entrepreneur and investor. After earning a BA in Physics at Franklin & Marshall College and a DMD from the University of Pennsylvania, Eric established and grew a thriving multi-doctor, a multi-office dental business that has prospered for three decades. Eric sold his dental business and now focuses on sharing his skills, connections, knowledge, and opportunities with successful professionals. He and his team build and manage diversified strategic portfolios and projects targeting high yields, tax advantages, and equity growth and preservation. Currently, Eric and his team are focusing on the clean energy technology space, where they have acquired over $50 million in assets over the past 2 years.

Tweetable Quotes:

“Before storage technology, the gas with the CO2 would come out of the ground. They would have to take all of that product to someplace to have it cleaned up so that then the gas could be used for what the gas was going to be used for." - Eric Shelly

By capturing and storing CO2, we're able to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels while maintaining a healthy environment. This is an important technology because we need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in a way that doesn't have a negative impact on the environment.” - Eric Shelly
