Background Information 

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced funding to develop carbon capture technologies capable of capturing at least 95 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated from natural gas power plants, waste-to-energy power plants, and industrial applications, including cement and steel. Deploying these technologies in the power and industrial sectors at commercial scale is needed to advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035, and a net-zero greenhouse gas economy by 2050. 


On August 26, 2022, the DOE announced more than $31 million in funding for 10 projects that will support the development and testing of transformational carbon capture materials, equipment, and processes for applications in natural gas combined cycle (NGCC), waste-to-energy power generation and the industrial sector. Other projects will perform front-end engineering design studies for industrial plants and NGCC power plants integrated with carbon capture systems.  

Awardees include: 

  • The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign  
  • Electric Power Research Institute 
  • Gas Technology Institute  
  • Lehigh Hanson, Inc.  
  • RTI International   
  • Susteon, Inc  
  • Tampa Electric Company  
  • The University of Kentucky Research Foundation

Along with selections announced in October 2021, FECM has invested a total of $76 million in 22 research and development, front-end engineering design, and engineering-scale projects at natural gas power, waste-to-energy, and industrial facilities.
