Responsible stewardship of the environment is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Energy and a key tenet of NETL’s mission. As we work to produce technological solutions for America’s energy challenges, environmental sustainability remains a driving factor. That’s why our research – from developing innovations for highly efficient energy production, to advancing technologies that enhance the extraction and transmission of domestic resources – is underpinned by innovations that monitor the environment to safeguard our air and water and ensure the safety and health of all Americans.
This month, NETL is featuring its work in environmental monitoring innovation. Read more in our web site’s Latest News section. It is work our researchers are proud of because it is based on solid success.
By producing technical solutions to America’s energy challenges, NETL has been a leader in environmental stewardship. For example:
Similar work on even better ways to safely and sustainably produce coal, oil, and natural gas remains a top priority at NETL.
These are just a few examples of how NETL is working to enhance our nation’s energy dominance while safeguarding the environment. Ensuring that we wisely tap into our abundant energy resources, including coal, natural gas and oil, builds a healthy foundation for our economy and future growth. NETL is ensuring that production of those resources is sustainable and we’re developing the technologies to ensure those resources are used with maximum efficiency. I’m proud of the contributions our lab is making toward improving America’s technological edge in energy. I think you will be, too.
As Acting Director of NETL, Sean I. Plasynski, Ph.D., builds on an extensive background in energy as he leads NETL in its mission to enhance the nation’s energy independence and protect the environment for future generations. For more information about Sean Plasynski's experience, please click here.
