FY 2022 FECM TCF Lab Call - Background

This Lab Call is being issued by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management's (FECM) Office of Carbon Management and Office of Resource Sustainability in partnership with the Office of Technology Transitions.

The Department of Energy Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) was established by Congress through the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and reauthorized by the recent Energy Act of 2020  to "promote promising energy technologies for commercial purposes." The DOE Technology Commercialization Fund is a primary component of DOE's ongoing effort to commercialize the cutting edge technologies in which DOE invests. As part of DOE’s FY22 TCF portfolio, the Carbon Dioxide Removal, Carbon Conversion, and the Minerals Sustainability divisions of FECM are proposing a joint solicitation focused on mineralizing solid alkaline mining waste via direct-air-captured carbon dioxide.

To apply to this Lab Call, lab personnel must send their letter of intent and full application materials to FECM-TCF@hq.doe.gov.

FECM plans on requiring a small private-sector cost share, well below 50 percent, subject to departmental approval.

Applicants should check back frequently for more precise updates.
