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.
Presenters featured at the two-day meeting include Fossil Energy Carbon Management’s Chief of Staff Shuchi Talati and representatives from several leading corporations, organizations and research institutions from across the country. Participants from NETL include Dan Hancu, Carbon Capture technology manager; research scientists Derrick Carlson and Timothy Skone; and Carbon Capture Team supervisor Jose Figueroa.

“Carbon dioxide removal technologies coupled with low carbon energy generation, point source carbon capture and long-duration carbon storage are critical elements of an integrated carbon management strategy to reach the Administration’s goal of achieving a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035 and a net-zero carbon pollution economy by 2050,” Hancu said.
The event is free and open to the public. Register to attend here.
