In the photo above: SRI International’s mixed salt process is seen here (bottom right) at engineering scale. SRI International, with oversight from NETL, is developing a transformational carbon capture technology that leverages an advanced mixed-salt process (MSP) to reduce capture costs and provide a pathway toward the nation’s decarbonization goals. “The technology SRI International and their partners are developing has the potential to significantly reduce the energy needed to regenerate the carbon capture solvent and compress the CO2 product, thereby reducing costs” said Krista Hill, NETL federal project manager for the project. Hill, a West Virginia native, earned her master’s in chemistry at the University of Oregon and then returned to her home state to join NETL’s carbon capture team in Morgantown. With a diverse background in materials research and development, project management, business development and STEM education, Hill is well-positioned to bring expertise and a unique perspective to the DOE-NETL mission.
