Two NETL researchers were awarded a patent for improvements to laser technology that can be used to detect CO2 leaks more efficiently from underground carbon storage sites. The technology also holds potential for use as an online sensor in a range of other hostile environments that require environmental monitoring.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) today announced up to $100 million to help develop a commercially viable carbon dioxide removal industry in the United States. The funding will support pilot projects and testing facilities to demonstrate and scale carbon dioxide removal technologies that reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution by removing it directly from the atmosphere and then storing the CO2 in geological, biobased, and ocean reservoirs or converting it into value-added products.
Building sign that reads "Achieving a zero carbon future."
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been selected to receive a new grant to advance the laboratory’s commitment to Executive Order (E.O.) 14057’s net-zero carbon emissions buildings goals and put the laboratory one step closer to becoming the first U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) facility to operate with 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by the end of fiscal year 2026.
NETL NEWS
WASHINGTON — 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 intended to assist DOE in the planning of priorities and initiatives to catalyze the development, demonstration, and deployment of carbon capture, conversion, and storage technologies to decarbonize America’s industrial sectors. Large-scale deployment of carbon management infrastructure is crucial to meeting the Biden-Harris Administration’s ambitious climate goal of achieving a net-zero emissions economy by 2050, while also delivering a healthier environment and economic opportunities for our communities and workers. This plan will supplement the material included in the September 2023 DOE report, Pathways to Commercial Liftoff: Industrial Decarbonization.
