NETL Scientists Honored by ASM International for Work on Platinum Chromium Alloy for Coronary Stents

For their work on the development, transfer, and successful commercialization of a novel platinum-chromium alloy used in next-generation coronary stents, scientists at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), and their colleagues, were honored with a 2015 ASM Engineering Materials Achievement Award from the materials science and engineering society ASM International.

NETL’s 2015 Carbon Storage Atlas Shows Increase in U.S. CO2 Storage Potential

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) today released the fifth edition of the Carbon Storage Atlas (Atlas V), which shows prospective carbon dioxide (CO2) storage resources of at least 2,600 billion metric tons – an increase over the findings of the 2012 Atlas.

Five Projects Focusing on Scale-Up of Carbon Storage Infrastructure Selected for NETL Funding

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected five research and development projects to receive Phase I funding through the “Fit-for-Purpose Field Project: Developing and Validating Pressure Management and Plume Control Strategies through a Brine Extraction Storage Test (BEST)” under NETL’s Carbon Storage Program. The term “fit for purpose” refers to research focused on developing specific subsurface engineering approaches that address research needs critical for advancing carbon capture and storage to commercial scale.  Projects selected will have an opportunity to continue to Phase II field projects through a down-select process.

DOE Selects Eight Projects to Receive Funding for Reducing the Cost of CO2 Capture and Compression

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected eight projects to receive funding to construct small- and large-scale pilots for reducing the cost of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and compression through DOE’s Carbon Capture Program.

NETL’s Greatest Asset

I am frequently asked, “What’s so special about NETL?” I respond that we have a long list of impressive accomplishments—innovations that strengthen the nation both inside and outside the energy arena. But what makes us truly exceptional is our people. I am proud and justifiably honored to work with an outstanding staff and to share their stories with my colleagues inside and outside the laboratory.
