NETL researchers and other participants from NETL-led projects will share their internationally recognized geo-data science expertise through presentations and poster sessions at the 2023 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, Dec. 11-15 in San Francisco, California.
Mike Fasouletos
Growing up near Moundsville, West Virginia, NETL’s Mike Fasouletos loved riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), dirt bikes and practically anything with a motor and wheels on the family’s farm. Those activities were more than a hobby. They drove Fasouletos to a career in engineering. “My dream job was going to be designing the next great bike or ATV for the big manufacturers who made the machines I loved to ride,” Fasouletos said.
Hannah Siegler
Hannah Sieger, NETL’s contracting officer representative (COR) for the upcoming Direct Air Capture (DAC) Center, grew up watching as evidence and effects of climate change mounted, and today she stands ready to support the Lab as it works to address this challenge. The testing and development of DAC technologies is an essential component of achieving a low-carbon economy and a tool to help mitigate some of the environmental issues the nation is facing.

NETL experts took part in the recent Global Direct Air Capture Conference, a two-day event that brought together global leaders and innovators who are working to develop direct air capture (DAC) as a robust, cost-effective and environmentally just technology to remove greenhouse gas from the atmosphere.
A forecasting toolkit developed jointly by a pair of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) initiatives and funded, in part, through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help operators of underground carbon dioxide (CO2) storage sites assess the likelihood and magnitude of seismic activity that could arise from commercial-scale injection.
A Hydrogen network.
NETL is a partner with major industry groups on three regional hydrogen hub projects selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to accelerate the commercial-scale deployment of low-cost, clean hydrogen — a valuable energy product that can be produced with zero or near-zero carbon emissions and is crucial to meeting clean energy goals.
Gail Choisser
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.
Direct air capture, which removes carbon dioxide directly form the atmosphere, will be critical for counterbalancing hard-to-decarbonize sectors.
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.
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.
Steelmaking operations at United States Steel Corporation.
NETL and United States Steel Corporation plan to test an advanced membrane technology to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated by steelmaking operations at the Company’s Edgar Thomson Plant, located in Braddock, Pennsylvania.
