US Department of Energy: Transformational Pre-combustion Carbon Capture Technologies

The US Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory invites applications for its transformational pre-combustion carbon capture technologies grants. These support the development of transformational technologies for carbon dioxide capture and purification at the lab-scale, at technology readiness level 3 to 4, through bench-scale, at TRL 4 to 5, for coal gasification facilities. The overall technical goal is to advance carbon dioxide capture and separation systems beyond second generation economic performance predictions.

Technologies must aim to make progress towards meeting overall fossil energy performance goals of carbon dioxide capture with 95 per cent carbon dioxide purity at a cost of electricity 30 per cent less than baseline capture approaches. Proposed solutions are expected to overcome limitations of singular, standard gas treatment systems. Hybrid systems, intensified processes and novel capture concepts are highly encouraged.

Tenderers may address one or two of the following focus areas:

  • area 1 – lab-scale carbon dioxide capture development and testing on simulated syngas;
  • area 2 – bench-scale carbon dioxide capture development and testing on actual syngas.

US and foreign for-profit and non-profit organisations and public and private organisations may submit bids either individually or in consortia with others.

Funding & Duration

The total budget is USD $7M (approx AUD $9.08M) to fund up to eight awards.

  • Minimum Funding – USD $1M (approx. AUD $1.3M)
  • Maximum Funding – USD $2.5M (approx. AUD $3.25M)

Applicants must demonstrate at least 20 per cent cost share of the total allowable research and development costs.

Eligibility

US and foreign for-profit and non-profit organisations and public and private organisations may submit bids either individually or in consortia with others.
