Today, the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management announced an upcoming webinar and in-person workshops designed to support the implementation of the carbon-related aspects of the Bi-partisan Infrastructure Law signed in November 2021. Potential applicants interested in developing commercial-scale storage facilities, point-source CO2 capture demonstration projects, direct air capture hubs, hydrogen production hubs with carbon capture and storage (CCS), carbon utilization, and CO2 transport to support the provision set in the law are encouraged to participate.
DOE will kick things off with a webinar beginning at 1 p.m. EDT April 7, 2022, followed by a series of full-day, in-person workshops “bringing together stakeholders of large-scale Carbon Management-related infrastructure projects” held over three-weeks across the US. Workshop schedules are: April 13 in Columbus, OH; April 19 in New Orleans, LA; and April 26th in Salt Lake City, UT.
During the webinar and workshops, DOE will cover:
- Various components of large-scale projects such as capture of CO2 from point sources and the atmosphere
- Commercial storage and transport of carbon dioxide
- Developing teams for integrated projects
- DOE procurement requirements and processes
- NEPA requirements and processes
- Lessons learned from past demonstration projects
- Alternate opportunities for carbon management
- Environmental justice and community engagement requirements
- Energy jobs
- Partnering with Tribal Nations
- Regulatory requirements
- Land and pore space access opportunities
