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 NETL-managed carbon capture projects, including post- and pre-combustion capture to reduce carbon emissions across a wide spectrum of industries, from carbon-based power generation to manufacturing and heavy industry, as well as negative emissions technologies, such as direct capture of CO2 from the atmosphere and bioenergy with carbon capture.
This work, which NETL undertakes in partnership with industry and the nation’s leading research universities, represents a major component in addressing the Biden Administration’s climate goals of a carbon emissions-free power sector by 2035 and a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.
