Two Georgia Tech Carbon Capture Projects Awarded Federal Grants

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded funding for two research projects from the Georgia Institute of Technology that focus on developing advanced post-combustion technologies for capturing carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants.  

The Georgia Tech awards represent two out of 16 announced by the agency on Aug. 25. In total, the DOE pledged to award more than $41 million over three years to organizations across the U.S. for projects focused on reducing the energy and cost penalties associated with current carbon-capture technologies.
