Under construction U.S. pipeline
NETL’s pipeline sensor team recently completed successful field tests of an extensive new collection of fiber optic sensor and surface acoustic wave sensor technologies for natural gas pipeline monitoring that can help ensure safer and more secure natural gas pipeline delivery and mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) methane emissions.
Jian (Jay) Liu monitors the performance of 4 1.5kW SOFC stacks being stress tested to evaluate the stacks’ suitability for use in data center applications.
NETL is demonstrating how solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) stacks are uniquely suited to address environmental concerns associated with electric power generation while meeting clean energy goals with installation of four 1.5 KW SOFC stacks at its Morgantown site to supply 5.6 KW of power to the facility’s grid.
Hydrogen Chemical Composition (H2)
NETL researchers have been awarded a patent for a new fiber optic sensor designed to detect hydrogen (H2) leaks at storage facilities that can save time and money compared to traditional methods — progress that can help accelerate the drive to put H2 to work as a dependable fuel to advance America’s decarbonization efforts.

Field tests of NETL-funded and managed direct air capture (DAC) technology projects in California and Alabama are helping to advance the realization of a carbon-neutral economy and energy sector to address the effects of climate change.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) is implementing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Section 40305 (Carbon Storage Validation and Testing) through its CarbonSAFE Initiative — the agency’s flagship effort to move carbon storage technologies into geographically widespread commercial practice. Federal funding for the CarbonSAFE Initiative is being provided through Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0002711.

NETL is helping establish four new regional direct air capture (DAC) Hubs around the U.S. to demonstrate how the innovative carbon dioxide (CO2) removal technology can be put to work curbing the world’s climate crisis.
NETL and Oak Ridge National Lab Researchers Join Forces In Signing
NETL is teaming with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to jointly explore a range of technology innovations for carbon management and strategies for economic development and sustainable energy transitions in the Appalachian region.
Alloy Production Furnace
NETL will share its expertise and research in materials sciences, spanning from high entropy alloys to gasification of plastics, among many other topics, at The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society’s (TMS) 2023 Annual Meeting and Exhibition scheduled for March 19-23 in San Diego.
