NETL Direct Air Capture Combined with Dedicated Long-Term Carbon Storage, Coupled to Existing Low-Carbon Energy
Direct Air Capture Combined with Dedicated Long-Term Carbon Storage, Coupled to Existing Low-Carbon Energy - is focused on front-end engineering design (FEED) studies of advanced Direct Air Capture DAC systems capable of removing a minimum of 5,000 tonne/yr. net carbon dioxide from air based on life cycle analysis, suitable for long duration carbon storage or carbon dioxide conversion/utilization.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued in collaboration with DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy and DOE’s Geothermal Technology Office, aims to better understand system costs, performance, as well as business case options for existing direct air capture DAC technologies co-located with low-carbon thermal energy sources or industrial facilities. This enhanced understanding will allow DOE-Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management DOE-FECM to better focus its direct air capture R&D program to accelerate development of this climate-critical technology and help the U.S. achieve greenhouse gas reduction targets.
