On a recent summer morning, more than 30 uniformed and tactical police officers arrived at the NETL research campus near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to participate in drill that simulated a workplace shooting.
An NETL researcher gathered invaluable knowledge and experience by participating in the annual Research Experience in Carbon Sequestration (RECS) program — a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) education program designed to help graduate students and early career professionals expand their knowledge and grow a collaborative network.
NETL personnel played key roles in Electric Power Transformation: 2023 MEGA Symposium — a national event focused on the transition of the energy generation industry to cleaner and climate resilient electric power that is cost-effective and reliable.
Members of the current class of Leadership West Virginia recently visited NETL-Morgantown and toured some of the Lab’s most impactful equipment and technologies that are making a sustainable energy future a reality.
An innovative sensor technology, developed by NETL and its partners at the University of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh-based company Sensible Photonics Inc. that can protect the Nation’s energy infrastructure, help save lives, and save the economy billions of dollars by preventing electric service downtime has scored a 2023 R&D 100 award in the topic area of IT/Electrical.
A groundbreaking experiment completed with NETL oversight is expected to generate important insights about the behavior of faults and other seismic activity when carbon dioxide (CO2) — a greenhouse gas — is injected into geologic formations.
NETL will join the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) and the U.S. Department of Energy in welcoming researchers and scientists from around the globe to Pittsburgh Sept. 25-27, 2023, to discuss the state of the art in post-combustion carbon capture technology at the Seventh IEAGHG Post-Combustion Capture Conference (PCCC7).
NETL researcher Dustin McIntyre, Ph.D., has an increasingly busy personal and professional life.
He is a full-time dad, brother, son, and scout leader in his Washington, Pennsylvania, hometown. He is also an award-winning innovator, spearheading important research on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy — an analytical technique that that supports development of affordable, reliable energy while protecting the environment.
NETL has initiated a four-year plan to develop a direct air capture (DAC) process that integrates expertise from the Lab’s extensive materials design, computational materials design, computation fluid dynamics, and process system design research portfolios to advance a cutting-edge technology that will remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
A full-scale exercise conducted at NETL’s research campus in Morgantown, West Virginia, tested emergency preparedness and identified areas for improvement to save lives and prevent injuries in the event of an actual workplace violence incident.
