Fossil Energy Today - Fourth Quarter, 2012

Here are just some of the stories in this quarter's issue: National Sequestration Education Center Opens in Illinois; Environment, Security, Safety and Health in FE; AVESTAR Centers Deploys 3-D Virtual Training System; and, FE Team Earns Secretary of Energy Achievement Awards.



    • The 15,000 square-foot sustainably designed National Sequestration Education Center, located at Richland Community College in Illinois, offers the nation’s first associate degree programs in carbon capture, utilization and storage.  The Center also provides community and regional outreach on CCS through its state-of-the-art interactive visitor’s center. The NSEC is part of a larger Department of Energy-sponsored Industrial Carbon Capture and Storage project.

      DOE-Sponsored Education Center Hosts International Meeting on CCS

      July 30, 2014 11:00 AM

      The National Sequestration Education Center kicked off a global workshop on carbon capture and storage in Decatur, Illinois. The two-day “International Workshop on Public Education, Training and Community Outreach for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage,” which is sponsored in part by the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, will feature cutting edge tools and techniques for public education, training and outreach on CCS.

    • The DOE team joins their Norwegian counterparts on a a tour of the <a href= "">CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad project</a> – the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture. Located just north of Bergen, this project includes a facility to test two kinds of advanced CO2 capture technologies on two different sources of carbon dioxide in the same location.  The goal of the project is to reduce the cost, as well as the technical, environmental, and financial risks related to large-scale CO2 capture – critical hurdles to commercial deployment of CCS.
      U.S.-Norway Conference Focuses on Advancing Carbon Capture and Storage

      The U.S. and Norway have a strong relationship that goes back nearly 100 years. We’ve been partners in a number of critical areas – from defense to the development of safe and secure energy sources. And our relationship is particularly strong when it comes to fossil energy. That close collaboration was recently on display during the 10th annual U.S.-Norway Bilateral Meeting on Fossil Energy, held in Bergen, Norway. Hosted by Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the meeting focused on carbon capture and storage – the process of capturing and storing
