As countries around the world mobilize to battle climate change, a growing number of organizations, institutions of higher education and governments from more than 90 nations including Norway, Spain, France, South Korea, India, Australia, Mexico and the United Kingdom are turning to a user-friendly, yet sophisticated tool developed by a team of NETL researchers to estimate the feasibility of storing captured carbon dioxide (CO2) in underground geological environments.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
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.
