WASHINGTON, Oct. 18, 2017 - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) plans to offer up to $26 million in federally-funded financial assistance for cost-shared research and development projects under the Office of Fossil Energy’s (FE) Novel and Enabling Carbon Capture Transformational Technologies funding opportunity announcement (FOA). Selected projects will support DOE’s Carbon Capture Program, demonstrating the potential to provide reductions in both cost and energy penalties associated with implementing carbon capture and enabling technologies for the coal and natural gas power generation sector. The projects, which will focus on development of novel transformational materials and processes and enabling technologies to improve carbon capture systems, will be managed by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). DOE anticipates selecting up to 14 projects for this FOA. More details about this funding opportunity can be found here.
