NETL’s Thomas Sarkus demonstrated the importance of giving back to ensure the next generation of engineers and scientists is prepared to advance crucial energy technologies when he addressed students at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Energy released a Request for Information yesterday to obtain input for implementing Future Growth Grants under the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation (CIFIA) program established under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). NETL is collecting the responses to the request for information.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Energy released a Request for Information yesterday to obtain input on the best approaches and options for developing field laboratories, whether at Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) initiative project sites or other sites. NETL is collecting the responses to the request for information.
For NETL engineer Eilis Rosenbaum and her colleagues, Pennsylvania serves as ground zero to develop reliable, cost-effective technologies needed to permanently plug abandoned or orphaned oil and gas wells that emit methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
Pennsylvania is the birthplace of the modern U.S. oil industry, which began in 1859 when Edwin Drake drilled the first commercial oil well in northwest Pennsylvania.
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM), is celebrating its second annual Carbon Management Day on December 1 (12.01).
The U.S. Department of Energy recently issued a $12 million Funding Opportunity Announcement to support the extraction and conversion of lithium from geothermal brines to use in batteries for stationary storage and electric vehicles.
This investment will support projects that strengthen and diversify the lithium supply chain—an important step on the path to achieving the Biden Administration’s goals of a net-zero clean energy economy by 2050 and 50% electric vehicle adoption by 2030.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Nov. 10, 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $1.5 million in funding for five projects that will advance key clean-hydrogen technologies while growing the skills and knowledge of science and engineering students at Minority Serving Institutions.
NETL representatives are supporting U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) efforts to gather information about the status of gasification technologies for biomass and solid waste at a special virtual workshop set for 9 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Nov. 30.
NETL selected six projects last year to receive a total of nearly $1 million to create a sustainable supply chain of critical minerals (CMs), including rare earth elements (REEs), which are crucial to the development of clean energy and national defense technologies. These projects have since made great strides toward their objectives, including drafting a report to provide insights into consumption and price data, characterizing midstream REE concentrates, and conducting a value analysis to determine the recoverable value of REEs from acid mine drainage (AMD).
