Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $3 million in funding for four national public power associations to help increase regional and state-level engagement in DOE’s emerging carbon management work and advance energy storage technologies at U.S. power generation facilities. The cooperative agreements issued with these awards will support the development of tools, educational resources and training in long-term planning and policy analysis to improve the conditions of frontline communities impacted by the legacy of fossil fuel use and support a healthy transition to a clean energy economy. DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will serve as the contracting authority for the cooperative agreements and will manage the following awards:

The Advanced Clean Energy Summit (ACES), scheduled for Sept. 21-22, held by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and organized with support from NETL, will showcase the latest in sustainable energy technology and practices, such as hydrogen power and carbon capture. Held in a virtual setting, ACES will bring together perspectives and expertise from around the globe as participants learn and network in a collaborative, open forum to foster the sustainable energy landscape of the future. Several prominent leaders from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) are scheduled to participate in leading roles throughout the summit. U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy David Turk will kick off the summit by delivering the opening keynote address on Sept. 21. DOE Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy and Carbon Management Jennifer Wilcox is scheduled to give a presentation on carbon capture and storage (CCS) with Noah Deich, president and co-founder of Carbon180, a non-government organization dedicated to decarbonizing the energy sector.

Learn about the latest developments in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)/NETL Carbon Capture Program in this month’s edition of the Carbon Capture Newsletter. The DOE/NETL Carbon Capture Program is developing the next generation of advanced carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies that can provide step-change reductions in both cost and energy requirements as compared to currently available technologies. The Carbon Capture Program focuses on the broad portfolio of projects, including post- and pre-combustion capture to reduce carbon emissions across a wide spectrum of industries. Other focus areas include carbon-based power generation and negative emissions technologies such as direct capture of CO2 from the atmosphere and bioenergy with carbon capture. Information featured in this month’s edition includes:

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced the selection of four additional research and development (R&D) projects that will receive $6 million to study new structured material systems and/or component designs for direct air capture (DAC) technology. These four projects join six previously announced DAC projects selected to receive $12 million in DOE funding. View the June 2021 selections here. “Georgia Tech is one of many institutions in Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District leading the charge towards improved air quality for all,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams. “This award will allow them to continue innovating technology to reduce carbon emissions. I appreciate Secretary Granholm and the Department of Energy for recognizing this work."

Key collaborators with NETL will discuss carbon capture research initiatives during the Carbon Capture Removal Research project review meeting, taking place Aug. 18-19. The meeting is one of several Carbon Management and Oil and Gas Research project review meetings to be held throughout August. The virtual session “Carbon Dioxide Removal Research” will encompass emerging carbon dioxide removal projects and technologies in development by NETL partners. The projects largely involve direct air capture technology, which reduces the impact of carbon emissions by removing it from the atmosphere. This emerging technology is of great interest to the Biden Administration and is helping drive innovation and deliver solutions within the U.S. power sector.

Experts in the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants, industrial sites and other large emitters of the greenhouse gas will discuss their cutting-edge work when NETL hosts “Point Source Capture — Lab, Bench and Pilot-Scale Research,” the next focus area in the Lab’s 2021 Carbon Management and Oil and Gas Research Project Review Meeting. Nearly 60 sessions on the design and development of novel materials, devices and processes to capture CO2 emissions will be presented Thursday and Friday, Aug. 12-13, and Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 16-17. All sessions are virtual, free and open to the public; however, registration is required. Click here to review the four-day agenda of presentations. 
Integrated CCUS Projects and FEED Studies, the first of six virtual sessions of the 2021 Carbon Management and Oil and Gas Research Project Review Meeting, will take place starting Monday, Aug. 2, 2021.
Meeting participants will discuss carbon management topics, including carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and front-end engineering design (FEED) studies for both power and industrial sectors, during the first of six project review meetings to be held in August.  The virtual session “Integrated CCUS Projects and FEED Studies,” will take place Monday, Aug. 2, and Tuesday, Aug. 3, and feature many of the Lab’s collaborative efforts with external partners around the nation that are helping to achieve the Biden Administration’s net-zero carbon emission goals in the power sector by 2035 and the broader economy by 2050.
