FOA Amount: $17.5 million
On September 21, 2023, U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $17.5 million in funding to advance technologies that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial facilities and power plants and convert those CO2 emissions into valuable products. Advancing the development of these technologies will help establish the foundation for a successful carbon capture and carbon conversion industry in the United States and will help meet the Biden-Harris Administration’s ambitious climate goals of achieving a carbon neutral power sector by 2035 and net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The deadline to submit applications for this funding opportunity has closed.
Eligible applicants include individuals, educational institutions, for- and non-profit entities, state, local, and tribal governments.
Areas of Interest
This funding opportunity announcement has two areas of interest:
- Biological Pathways Utilizing Algae to Convert Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide to Products
- Decarbonization of Industrial Processes Using Oxygen-Based (Oxy-combustion and Chemical Looping) Approaches
DOE expects to make up to 16 awards between $250,000 and $1 million each with a minimum of a 20% cost-sharing from the awardees.

|Expected Date for Selection Notifications:||April 2024|
The first set of four projects (selected under round one of this funding opportunity) will support research and development for technologies that can convert carbon dioxide emissions captured from industrial facilities and power plants into long-lived building materials like concrete, while significantly reducing overall life cycle emissions in the process. The projects will also focus on improving the cost efficiency of these processes.
The second set of 19 research and development projects (selected under round two of this funding opportunity) will support cost-effective processes for ocean-based carbon removal technologies and direct air capture of carbon dioxide coupled with carbon-free hydrogen to create carbon-neutral methanol — a chemical building block for many valuable products such as fuels and plastics.
