The Greenhouse's Effect: NETL and Phipps Join Forces to Study Water
August 15, 2013

At first glance, one of the world’s greenest greenhouses and an energy lab may seem an unlikely pair, but they share more than their Pittsburgh, Pa., location. The Phipps Conservatory Botanical Gardens and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) also share a concern for water.

Historically Black Colleges and Universities Receive Funds for Fossil Energy Research
August 15, 2013

Five fossil energy-related projects that will help maintain the nation’s energy portfolio while also providing educational and research training opportunities for tomorrow's scientists and engineers have been selected for funding by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

August 14, 2013

Ten university projects to conduct advanced turbine technology research under the Office of Fossil Energy’s University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR) Program have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for additional development.

Ancient Lava Flows Trap CO2 for Long-Term Storage in Big Sky Injection
August 13, 2013
How can a prehistoric volcanic eruption help us reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere today? The answer is found in the basalt formations created by the lava – formations that can be used as sites for injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from industrial sources in a process called carbon capture and storage (CCS).

One Thing Leads to Another: How NETL Research Saves Lives
August 08, 2013

Balanced on the tip of a finger, it doesn’t look like much — a bit of screen door, perhaps, or a badly mangled paper clip — but this little piece of metal is making big news in the medical community, and big changes in the lives of patients with coronary- and peripheral-artery disease.
