WASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced up to $32 million in funding toward the research and development of new monitoring, measurement, and mitigation technologies to help detect, quantify, and reduce methane emissions across oil and natural gas producing regions of the United States. After carbon dioxide, methane is the most abundant greenhouse gas (GHG) warming our planet, and methane emissions contribute significantly to the GHG intensity of natural gas.
NETL Director Brian Anderson, Ph.D., and Thermal Science Team supervisor Ronald Breault, Ph.D., highlighted the Lab’s contributions in building hydrogen-based energy infrastructures and power systems of the future during his keynote address to the 2022 Clearwater Clean Energy Conference held Aug. 1-4 at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater, Florida.
A case study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) NETL examined the performance and cost of different sorbent-based direct air capture (DAC) system configurations that remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) NETL is supporting an award-winning startup company to help develop a novel power plant technology that can produce clean water from cooling tower plumes.
The technology could significantly reduce water consumption in evaporative cooling tower systems by capturing water from cooling tower plumes, which are formed when water vapor generated in cooling towers mixes with colder ambient air as it leaves the tower and condenses.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) produced water optimization program, PARETO, developed by NETL and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), was named a winner in Hart Energy’s 2022 Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation (MEAs) for its water management capabilities.

Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) has announced up to $6 million available for research and development (R&D) projects that will repurpose domestic coal resources for products that can be employed in clean energy technologies such as batteries and advanced manufacturing. Expanding innovative uses for coal and coal wastes has the potential to create local job opportunities for power plant communities as our country transitions to a net-zero greenhouse gas economy.
NETL’s Reaction Analysis and Chemical Transformation Facility (ReACT) will be front and center when a premier group of industry leaders working on more efficient industrial processes visit the Morgantown, West Virginia, site Tuesday, Aug. 9. NETL Director Brian Anderson, Ph.D., will deliver welcoming remarks to the visitors.
NETL’s work to evolve advanced vehicle technologies, including electric vehicles, and expand their use on American highways has been recognized for excellence by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO).
The July 2022 edition of the RWFI E-Note Monthly, NETL’s Regional Workforce Initiative (RWFI) newsletter, is now available and includes details on a range of grant funding and training opportunities from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
