EDX Carbon Storage Data Resources Merge Reliable Assets with User Convenience

NETL strives to realize new technologies for carbon capture and storage (CCS), which have been recognized as having potential to help achieve a net-zero carbon emissions energy sector. However, taking CCS processes from concepts to reality requires reliable data from a multitude of sources in a one-stop digital stop. That’s where NETL’s Energy Data eXchange (EDX) Carbon Storage Data Resources can help.

Department of Energy Announces Intent to Fund Projects for Geologic Carbon Storage

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced its intent to fund cost-shared research and development to accelerate the wide-scale deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR)—critical components to achieve the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The potential projects will be selected under the DOE’s Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) Initiative, which focuses on developing geologic storage sites with capacities to store at least 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). Projects will be managed by FECM’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).

Helping to Ensure Successful Geologic Carbon Storage with CO2-SCREEN

To meet aggressive decarbonization goals set by the Biden Administration in the fight against climate change, NETL has developed toolsets such as the Lab’s CO2-SCREEN (Storage prospeCtive Resource Estimation Excel aNalysis) to advance carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology development and deployment. CO2-SCREEN provides reliable and accurate carbon dioxide (CO2) storage estimates for a wide variety of geological formations, allowing governments, industries and other stakeholders, including local communities, to confidently explore geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) options that will help achieve net-zero carbon emissions in the electric sector by 2035 and the broader economy by 2050.

DOE Awards $20 Million to Help States Deploy Carbon Capture and Storage

Regional Initiatives Are Helping States Leverage the Environmental and Economic Benefits of CCUS, Delivering Good-Paying Local Jobs The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $20 million in funding to four projects working to accelerate the regional deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). Expanding the deployment of CCUS will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial sources and is a crucial component to achieving the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
