Four projects aimed at reducing the energy and cost penalties of advanced carbon capture systems applied to power plants have been selected for further development by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy.
The role of fossil fuels in a sustainable energy future will be one of the topics under discussion when experts from around the world meet at the 28th Annual International Pittsburgh Coal Conference, Sept. 12-15, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.
The Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy has selected three projects to develop novel sensing and control technologies aimed at the efficient operation of advanced, zero-emission power systems and the improvement of operations at existing fossil energy power plants.
Metallurgists at the Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) have helped develop a new alloy that is increasing the safety of an important medical procedure by being used to manufacture more flexible and conformable coronary stents.
A total of 11 research projects that will help find ways to extract more energy from unconventional oil and gas resources while reducing environmental risks have been selected totaling $12.4 million by DOE's Office of Fossil Energy.
The Department of Energy has selected four universities to receive grants under the department’s annual competition for fossil energy research ideas from Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions.
Research and development activities at DOE's Office of Fossil Energy have helped increase domestic energy supplies and security, lowered costs, improved efficiencies, and enhanced environmental protection over the past 30 years, according to newly released informational materials.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s portfolio of field projects aimed at confirming that long-term geologic carbon dioxide storage is safe and environmentally secure has been expanded by three projects selected to collectively receive $34.5 million over four years.
