Notice of Intent Announcement
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) today announced their intent to issue funding to support research and development (R&D) projects focused on facilities to test a variety of carbon management technologies, including carbon capture, removal and conversion.

NETL experts and representatives of the Department of Energy (DOE) visited North Carolina to review final preparations to ship and test a lower-cost transformational technology developed by CORMETECH Inc. that is designed to capture at least 95% of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the flue gas of natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) power plants.

Completing an 8,000-mile business trip in just six days can be daunting, but the journey was well worth the effort for a contingent from NETL and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) to ensure key projects supported by NETL remain on track to capture greenhouse gas from industrial sources.

An NETL researcher overseeing construction of the Lab’s Direct Air Capture (DAC) Center recently met with industry and scientific leaders in Switzerland to discuss accelerating the commercialization of critical technologies for removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
Pipeline construction
NETL’s Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Pipeline Route Planning Database — a one-stop-shop for U.S.  geospatial data resources collected to help strategically plan safe and sustainable routes for transportation of carbon dioxide (CO2) from where it is captured to where it can be stored underground or converted into other products — was the subject of paper in a national science journal. 
The Chemical Looping Reactor
NETL researchers have developed a new scaling methodology for measuring and understanding the performance of key elements used in circulating fluidized bed technologies (CFB) that can speed the development of CFBs for more widespread use.

Two NETL researchers were awarded a patent for improvements to laser technology that can be used to detect CO2 leaks more efficiently from underground carbon storage sites. The technology also holds potential for use as an online sensor in a range of other hostile environments that require environmental monitoring.
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 $100 million to help develop a commercially viable carbon dioxide removal industry in the United States. The funding will support pilot projects and testing facilities to demonstrate and scale carbon dioxide removal technologies that reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution by removing it directly from the atmosphere and then storing the CO2 in geological, biobased, and ocean reservoirs or converting it into value-added products.
Building sign that reads "Achieving a zero carbon future."
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been selected to receive a new grant to advance the laboratory’s commitment to Executive Order (E.O.) 14057’s net-zero carbon emissions buildings goals and put the laboratory one step closer to becoming the first U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) facility to operate with 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by the end of fiscal year 2026.
