Community and technical college students in West Virginia will learn about the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of clean energy plants utilizing unique simulator based training in a new agreement signed with the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.
One of the world’s fastest, most energy-efficient supercomputers - expected to help energy researchers discover new materials, optimize designs and better predict operational characteristics - is up and running at the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory in Morgantown, W.Va.
The United States has at least 2,400 billion metric tons of possible carbon dioxide storage resource in saline formations, oil and gas reservoirs, and unmineable coal seams, according to a new U.S. Department of Energy publication.
A simulator that can provide future engineers with realistic, hands-on experience for operating advanced natural gas combined cycle power plants will soon be available at an innovative U.S. Department of Energy training center.
A new U.S. Department of Energy cooperative research and development agreement to develop, test, and deploy a dynamic simulator and operator training system could eventually help commercialize important carbon capture technologies at the nation’s power plants.
A project important to demonstrating the commercial viability of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology has completed the first year of injecting carbon dioxide from an industrial plant at a large-scale test site in Illinois.
In a project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, researchers at The Ohio State University have developed a groundbreaking new hybrid membrane that combines the separation performance of inorganic membranes with the cost-effectiveness of polymer membranes.
Washington, DC - A new stent that incorporates an innovative metal alloy developed by scientists at Boston Scientific Corporation and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has received European approval for use in the treatment of certain peripheral arterial diseases. Initially developed for use as a coronary stent, the new PROMUS ELEMENT PLUS BTK drug-eluting stent system is designed for treatment of critical limb ischemia, a severe obstruction of arteries within the extremities which reduces blood flow and can damage tissues.
Secretary of Energy Steven Chu today honored two Office of Fossil Energy groups - NETL's Coronary Stents Team and SPR's 2011 Drawdown Team - with Secretary of Energy Achievement Awards for exceptional performance in carrying out the Department’s mission.
