DOE to continue CCS research funding

2 October 2017

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a funding opportunity for projects advancing carbon capture technologies.

The DOE says it will provide up to $36 million of funds for cost-shared research and development projects that will help carbon capture technologies reach the engineering scale or commercial design stage.

It will make up to four awards for projects that aim to scale up carbon capture technologies, and up to two awards for the initial engineering, testing and design for a commercial-scale, post-combustion CO2 capture system.

These projects will undertake engineering-scale testing of transformational solvent – or membrane-based CO2 – capture technologies, and will conduct design work for a commercial-scale, post-combustion CO2-capture system at an existing coal-fueled generating unit, DOE said.

“Carbon capture technologies are one of the most effective ways we can continue to leverage the sustainability of our Nation’s fossil fuel resources while advancing environmental stewardship,” said US Energy Secretary Rick Perry. “This funding opportunity will provide for further innovation on methods for capturing carbon emissions for storage and other utilization efforts, as well as underscore this Administration’s commitment to both environmental and economic security.”
