NETL Collaborations Advance Carbon Management Strategies

Capturing carbon emissions before they can be released to the atmosphere and storing them safely and permanently is a key part of national efforts to curb climate change. This process, called carbon capture and storage (CCS), is also a critical component of the President’s Climate Action Plan.

Projects Selected for Safe and Permanent Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of 13 projects to develop technologies and methodologies for geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research is focused on developing technologies to capture industrially generated CO2, and safely and permanently store it in underground geologic formations, in order to reduce the amount of CO2 being released into the atmosphere.

Grace Bochenek Named New Director of DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory

The Department of Energy announced today that Grace Bochenek has been named the director of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).

Bochenek will manage the day-to-day operations of NETL, the national laboratory for the Office of Fossil Energy's research and development program. With more than 1,000 federal and contractor employees at five sites across the nation, NETL’s primary mission is to develop new technologies and approaches to ensure the safe, clean, and affordable use of fossil energy resources, including carbon capture and storage; advanced generation technology for new and existing coal-based power plants, and advanced research on novel concepts.
