Washington, DC - Changes in operating conditions coupled with changes in commercially manufactured catalysts can produce both power generation increases and significant cost savings at Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants, according to new research from a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored project.
Evaluation-related test drilling at geologic sites in three states that could store a combined 64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions - an important component of carbon capture, utilization and storage technology development - has been completed in projects supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Washington, DC - One of the world’s fastest supercomputers will be installed at the Office of Fossil Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) this summer to help develop solutions to carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology barriers.
A Department of Energy program that helps graduate students and early career professionals gain hands-on field research experience in areas related to carbon capture, utilization and storage is accepting applications until April 15.
An innovative clean coal technology project in Texas will supply electricity to the largest municipally owned utility in the United States under a recently signed Power Purchase Agreement, the U.S. Department of Energy announced today.
The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium, one of seven regional partnerships created by the U.S. Department of Energy to advance carbon storage technologies nationwide, has begun injecting carbon dioxide for their large-scale CO2 injection test in Decatur, Illinois.
Geologic capacity exists to permanently store hundreds of years of regional carbon dioxide emissions in nine states stretching from Indiana to New Jersey, according to injection field tests conducted by the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership.
The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a Record of Decision that - along with a signed cooperative agreement - will allow federal funding to be used to help build one of the world’s most advanced and environmentally clean coal-based power plants.
Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy announced today the selection of 16 projects aimed at developing advanced post-combustion technologies for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal–fired power plants. The projects, valued at $41 million over three years, are focused on reducing the energy and cost penalties associated with applying currently available carbon capture technologies to existing and new power plants.
