Department of Energy Solicits CO2 Capture System Projects

Mar 22, 2019

The Department of Energy recently announced a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) of up to $30 million for projects that handle cost-shared research and development (R&D) for front-end engineering design (FEED) studies for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture systems.

DOE is maintaining a focus on R&D projects for transformational carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies as they help to keep the cost of CCUS low. These projects will be funded by the DOE Office of Fossil Energy’s Carbon Capture program, and will support FEED studies for CO2 systems on both coal and natural gas power plants.

The FOA has three Areas of Interest:

  • AOI 1: FEED studies for retrofitting existing domestic coal power plants with carbon capture;
  • AOI 2: FEED studies for commercial-scale carbon capture units on new or existing (retrofit) domestic gas-fired power plants or new domestic coal plants;
  • AOI 3: FEED studies for carbon dioxide purification and compression systems for domestic coal or natural gas power plants that generate carbon dioxide suitable for utilization or storage.

All proposals are due by 12pm on May 13.
