James Conca reports on Forbes about the efforts of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to advance carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) technology.
- PNNL is using the unique properties of a solvent known as EEMPA to reduce the cost and time required to traditionally sequester carbon.
- PNNL has also found a way to safely store sequestered carbon in basalt rocks, unlocking new storage potential in the United States.
- The efforts of PNNL are unlocking new ways to scale up CCUS in the United States.
“Next year, the PNNL team will produce 4,000 gallons of EEMPA to test in the facilities at the National Carbon Capture Center in Shelby County, Alabama, in a project led by the Electric Power Research Institute in partnership with Research Triangle Institute International.”
