Background Information 

On September 23, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $92 million to design regional CO2 pipeline networks to safely transport captured CO2 from key sources to centralized locations. Projects will focus on carbon transport costs, transport network configurations, and technical and commercial considerations that support broad efforts to develop and deploy carbon capture, conversion, and storage at commercial scale.

The intent of this funding opportunity is to award projects with consideration for the creation and integration of a hub and cluster configuration, rather than a standalone carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)/ carbon dioxide removal (CDR) pipeline(s). Applicants are also encouraged to propose projects that will repurpose existing pipeline(s) into CO2 service. Projects will expand DOE’s knowledge of carbon transport costs, transport network configurations, and technical and commercial considerations to support the country’s broader efforts to develop and deploy carbon capture and carbon dioxide removal technologies, carbon conversion, and storage at fully-commercial scale. 

This funding is provided from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Section 40303.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants include individuals, institutions of higher education, for-profit and non-profit organizations, state and local governments, and Tribal Nations.
