Researchers at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will team with two prestigious national laboratories and a major research university to execute two strategic computing projects aimed at meeting the scientific and national security mission needs of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
The Energy Department’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected five new projects to receive funding for research in support of the laboratory’s effort to identify and characterize coal and coal by-products containing high concentrations of Rare Earth Elements (REE).
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been recognized by R&D Magazine for developing three of the most innovative technologies this year. The R&D 100 Awards, given annually by R&D Magazine, have become known as the “Oscars of Invention” and celebrate the top technology products of the year.
Back in February, we shared that DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) researchers were exploring the potential of using copper in a process known as chemical looping to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal-fired power plants. Their research is bearing fruit as more than 40 hours of chemical looping operations have been conducted using copper —a new lab record.
Carbon capture is a key component in U.S. energy strategy—but after the greenhouse gas has been captured, scientists are still working out what to do with it! One laboratory at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has focused on using the captured carbon as a potential supply of industrially valuable chemicals and fuels.
A special issue of the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control (IJGGC) was released on August 17, 2016 highlighting carbon-storage research conducted under the Energy Department’s National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP).
