Washington, DC - Changes in operating conditions coupled with changes in commercially manufactured catalysts can produce both power generation increases and significant cost savings at Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants, according to new research from a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored project.
Washington, DC - When people think of benefits from energy research, they usually don’t envision saving lives. But thanks to an innovative alloy jointly developed by Boston Scientific Corporation (BSCI) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) metallurgists, that’s what is happening.
Evaluation-related test drilling at geologic sites in three states that could store a combined 64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions - an important component of carbon capture, utilization and storage technology development - has been completed in projects supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Washington, DC - Four projects that will strengthen and promote U.S. energy security, scientific discovery and economic competitiveness while producing a diverse next generation of scientists and engineers have been selected as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) long running minority educational research program.
Gasification. It’s a versatile technology that uses coal to produce power, chemicals, and fuels. Inherently low in air emissions, solid byproducts, and wastewater, commercial gasification plants have proven capable of exceeding the most stringent regulations for air- and solids-emissions.
An innovative clean coal technology project in Texas will supply electricity to the largest municipally owned utility in the United States under a recently signed Power Purchase Agreement, the U.S. Department of Energy announced today.
The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium, one of seven regional partnerships created by the U.S. Department of Energy to advance carbon storage technologies nationwide, has begun injecting carbon dioxide for their large-scale CO2 injection test in Decatur, Illinois.
The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a Record of Decision that - along with a signed cooperative agreement - will allow federal funding to be used to help build one of the world’s most advanced and environmentally clean coal-based power plants.
U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced today the selection of six projects aimed at developing technologies to lower the cost of producing electricity in integrated gasification combined cycle power plants using carbon capture, while maintaining the highest environmental standards.
Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy announced today the selection of 16 projects aimed at developing advanced post-combustion technologies for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal–fired power plants. The projects, valued at $41 million over three years, are focused on reducing the energy and cost penalties associated with applying currently available carbon capture technologies to existing and new power plants.
