NETL, representing U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (DOE-FECM), will join in the April 7 kick-off of the Regional Carbon Management Applicant Education Workshops, which will provide information on how to initiate a variety of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects.

Deputy Director for NETL’s Technology Development Center Heather Quedenfeld along with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Team Supervisor Fred Pozzuto and Contracting Officer Jeff Kooser are scheduled to speak during the virtual kick-off, scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. EST. The workshops support implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). The sessions are intended for potential applicants interested in supporting decarbonization and developing commercial-scale storage facilities, point-source carbon dioxide (CO2) capture demonstration projects, direct air capture hubs, hydrogen production hubs with CCS, carbon utilization, and CO2 transport required by BIL provisions.

DOE will address various components of large-scale projects such as

·       Capture of CO2 from point sources and the atmosphere

·       Commercial storage and transport of carbon dioxide; developing teams for integrated projects

·       DOE procurement requirements and processes; NEPA requirements and processes; lessons learned from past demonstration projects

·       Alternate opportunities for carbon management

·       Environmental justice and community engagement requirements

·       Energy jobs

·       Regulatory requirements

·       Land and pore space access opportunities

The Lab’s Carbon Management Program is comprised of world-class leaders, scientists and engineers. The program houses the necessary engineering and scientific expertise to manage external research and development projects that further the DOE-FECM’s goals. Research in this area supports point source carbon capture, CO2 removal, CO2 conversion into products, reliable CO2 storage, blue hydrogen production and critical mineral production from industrial and mining waste.

This virtual event will then be followed by a three-week series of in-person, day-long workshops bringing together stakeholders of large-scale carbon management-related infrastructure projects. In-person events will be held in Columbus, Ohio on April 13, New Orleans, Louisiana on April 19 and Salt Lake City, Utah on April 26. NETL specialists are also tentatively scheduled to speak at these in-person events.
