Carbon capture and storage technologies win DOE funding

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected 16 projects aimed at developing advanced post-combustion technologies for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal-fired power plants.

DOE will give $41 million in financing over the next three years to the projects that are focused on reducing the energy and cost penalties associated with using currently available carbon capture and storage technologies in existing and new power plants. The new technologies can be applied to the CCS systems using a type of filter that would help isolate the CO2 from other gases before it leaves the plant. The filter can take the form of solvents, sorbents or membranes.
