With NETL support, through the Lab’s University Training and Research program, researchers at the University of California, Riverside used advanced computing models that harness machine learning to efficiently reduce impingement in boilers — an innovation that can ensure longer and more efficient service life for power plants and even potentially extend the lives of helicopter rotor blades or aircraft engine components.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) today announced up to $17.5 million in funding to advance technologies that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial facilities and power plants and convert those CO2 emissions into valuable products.

With insights from custom mapping and data science analyses, NETL is helping prioritize energy communities and spotlight opportunities for economic improvement and environmental justice in a changing energy landscape.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
Washington — The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) today announced it is making up to $27 million available through President Biden’s Investing in America agenda to support the transport of carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from industrial and power generation facilities, as well as from legacy carbon dioxide emissions captured directly from the atmosphere,  to locations for permanent geologic storage or conversion to useful products.

Research by NETL and its partners is advancing discoveries to produce graphite — a material whose unique properties make it an essential component for mass-producing battery electric vehicles (BEVs), energy storage systems and other green technologies — from unwanted carbon waste materials.
IWG facts and information.
The NETL-supported Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization (Energy Communities IWG) is providing centralized, easy-to-navigate tools and resources that help communities discover and access a range of federal funding that helps ensure that no communities are left behind during the nation’s transition to a clean energy economy.
