November 2021 Edition of Carbon Capture Newsletter Released

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:

  • An announcement by DOE to advance 12 projects that can capture at least 95% of CO2 emissions generated from natural gas power and industrial facilities. The projects support DOE’s efforts to deploy innovative solutions to help achieve the Administration’s goals of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and a 100% clean electricity sector by 2035.
  • Interagency news on priority topics, including plans to leverage existing low-carbon energy to scale up direct air capture technologies, as well as summaries from several conferences and proceedings at which NETL leaders and experts discussed successes in advanced carbon capture technologies. 
  • Business and industry news updates, featuring efforts to design “mechanical trees” to capture and store CO2 so it can be sold for use in a variety of applications, such as synthetic fuels or in the food, beverage and agriculture industries.
  • Links to recently published journal articles and reports.
