LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Energy Department has awarded nearly $2.4 million to the University of Wyoming for research into commercial carbon capture and storage projects in Wyoming.

UW is among 13 universities and other organizations selected to share more than $44 million in research and development funds.

The funding is part of a DOE initiative to help mitigate carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.

UW's project involves assessing secure, commercial-scale CO2 capture and storage at the Rock Springs Uplift in southwest Wyoming and studying CO2 capture, transportation and storage opportunities at Basin Electric Power Cooperative's Dry Fork Power Station near Gillette.

Previous research by UW and other entities has identified the Rock Springs Uplift as an ideal location for carbon storage.
