Meet the NRAP Team

The National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP) is a multi-national laboratory collaborative research effort leveraging broad technical capabilities across the DOE complex to develop the integrated science base, computational tools, and protocols required to quantitatively assess and manage environmental risks at geologic carbon storage sites. NRAP involves five DOE national laboratories: NETL, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).

NRAP Stakeholders Group

The NRAP Stakeholder Group comprises representatives from industry, academia, state and federal regulatory agencies, other federal research entities, and non-governmental organizations with informed perspectives on critical hurdles to CCUS deployment. This stakeholder perspective informs the NRAP Executive Committee as they guide the NRAP research group on key areas for investigation.
