Blue Pencil and Gold Screen Awards logo
The Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization (Energy Communities IWG), which is supported by NETL, has been awarded a second-place 2024 Blue Pencil & Gold Screen Award from the National Association of Government Communicators for the “Catalyzing Economic Development in Pennsylvania’s Energy Communities” event held Oct. 20, 2023, at Westmoreland County Community College in Youngwood, Pennsylvania.
Direct Air Capture Center logo
NETL’s one-of-a-kind Direct Air Capture (DAC) Center has commenced material-scale operations and is eager to expand partnerships with innovators from government, academia and the private sector that are interested in commercializing DAC technology, helping to meet the Administration’s goals of addressing legacy carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and achieving a net-zero emissions future by 2050.
Request for Information
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) has released a Request for Information (RFI) that seeks input on developing a high hydrogen production rate, low-cost, efficient reversible solid oxide fuel cell (R-SOFC) that has long-term stability and can operate on and/or produce hydrogen.
Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings
NETL took part in a recent meeting with experts from across the national lab system, academia and industry who gathered at Pennsylvania State University to discuss the development of atom-thin two-dimensional (2D) coatings with wide-ranging applications.
NETL researchers are studying how to increase the lifetimes and effectiveness of sorbents used in Direct Air Capture technologies to remove CO2 from the air.
NETL researchers are studying how sorbents used in Direct Air Capture (DAC) technologies degrade and working on ways to accurately predict sorbent’s lifetimes and limit degradation.
Simulations with non-spherical particles (glued-sphere particle model) are one of the new capabilities available in the MFiX 24.1 release.
NETL has announced the release of Multiphase Flow with Interphase eXchanges (MFiX) Version 24.1, the latest upgrade to multiphase computational fluid dynamics software used to shorten the time and cost associated with developing new power generation technologies.
Dallas, Texas
NETL will display its work with Pennsylvania State University to develop strengthened alloys for use in turbines at the 14th Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) Energy Innovation Summit May 22-24 in Dallas, Texas.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) removal (CDR) research — efforts to scale-up and commercialize technologies that will offset so-called hard-to-avoid carbon emissions and remove legacy CO2 from the atmosphere and store it at the gigaton scale — being conducted at NETL will be instrumental in meeting the decarbonization goals of the United States.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) today announced four research and development projects selected to receive nearly $32 million to advance technologies that will help reduce natural gas flaring at oil production sites, a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, by transforming gas into valuable products that would otherwise be wasted by those operations. These projects support President Biden’s U.S. Methane Emissions Reduction Action Plan, which launched a whole-of-government initiative to redouble efforts to significantly reduce methane emissions while protecting workers and communities, growing jobs, and promoting U.S. technology innovation. Aligned with this action is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new rule tackling wasteful methane emissions and the Administration’s pledge that the United States will work with global partners to reduce the world’s methane emissions 30% from 2020 levels by 2030.
