A new, innovative software product developed by a team of experts from the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), West Virginia University (WVU), and Schneider Electric has been recognized with a coveted R&D 100 Award.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent to Solidia Technologies Inc. (Piscataway, NJ) for a process that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) rather than water to cure pre-cast concrete. Development of the process was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz today announced the formation of an international initiative to facilitate collaborative testing of advanced carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies at real-world, saline storage sites.
The event, which is being co-chaired by the United States and Saudi Arabia, kicked off with various policy and technical meetings with representatives from more than 20 countries. It will culminate on Wednesday with a day-long conference of energy ministers, including Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.
The Energy Department’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) teamed up with Carnegie Mellon University to create a revolutionary, cost-effective technology to reduce the impact of corrosion, which costs the US economy an estimated $276 billion per year. This partnership resulted in the creation of a new spin-off company that signed a licensing agreement with NETL this past June.
Gold nanoparticles are at the heart of a new process conceived and developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) that can efficiently convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into usable chemicals and fuels—a breakthrough that could lead to an effective industrial scale way to reduce CO2 emissions for a positive impact on the world’s environment. The innovation was recently detailed by NETL in the American Chemical Society (ACS) publication ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
Researchers from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) have teamed with the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) on a multi-part project to investigate the feasibility of injecting captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic-rich rocks, deep underground, to permanently store the greenhouse gas while simultaneously recovering natural gas.
On August 25, senior U.S. government officials including Fossil Energy's Assistant Secretary Christopher Smith joined with Vice Administrator Shi Yubo of China’s National Energy Administration to kick off the U.S. – China Clean Coal Industry Forum in Billings, MT.
