DOE Funds Nine Carbon Capture Research Projects

The U.S. Department of Energy announced Aug. 17 that it will provide $24 million in funding for nine carbon capture projects.

The projects selected to receive funding include two national laboratories and seven universities researching new materials and processes for carbon capture, as well as the subsequent sequestration or reuse of captured carbon. The projects will support the development of new capture technologies and solutions for overcoming the main limitations in the way of current technologies, like inefficient energy usage. 

The institutions selected for the development of their individual research projects include:

  • Washington State University
  • Oklahoma State University
  • University of Illinois
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Case Western Reserve University
  • North Carolina A&T State University
  • Oregon State University
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Northwestern University

“Finding ways to remove and store carbon directly from the air is an absolute necessity in our fight against the climate crisis,” Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said in a statement. “This investment in carbon capture technology research through universities and DOE laboratories will position America as a leader in this growing field, create good-paying jobs, and help make our carbon-free future a reality.”
