The National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL’s) Nicolas Huerta has been honored as a Great Minds in STEM™ Luminary Honoree by the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Corporation (HENAAC).
Dr. Huerta, who has made significant scientific contributions to the field of carbon dioxide (CO2) storage risk assessment, is being recognized for his work as a leader and role model to the Hispanic technical community.
The U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected six projects to receive funding through NETL’s University Coal Research Program, administered by the Crosscutting Research Technology Program. The University Coal Research Program funds research and development at U.S. colleges and universities for coal conversion and utilization.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected nine projects to receive funding to research new CO2 storage technologies devoted to intelligent monitoring systems and advanced well integrity and mitigation approaches through DOE’s Carbon Storage Program.
The Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected 16 projects to receive funding through NETL’s Carbon Capture Program. The program funds development and testing of transformational carbon dioxide (CO2) capture systems for new and existing coal-based power plants. Research funded by this program is expected to help overcome limitations of singular, standard gas treatment systems, such as those based on solvents, sorbents, or membranes alone.
NETL’s Story – A Long History of Excellence
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has a long and colorful story of success to tell, and I’m happy to spread the word of our many accomplishments this month, as the Energy Department’s national labs celebrate their history and contributions.
