Overview

This opportunity will fund projects that support and accelerate the development of CO2 transport by a variety of modes, such as through pipelines, rail, trucks, and ships or barges. The CO2 must be derived only from anthropogenic sources (which could include CO2 derived by direct capture from ambient air) and must ultimately be delivered to CO2 conversion sites or geologic storage facilities. Applicants must propose to develop a common carrier CO2 transport system that, either by itself or integrated within a larger transport network, can transport anthropogenic CO2 from two or more carbon capture sources to one or more CO2 conversion sites or geologic storage facilities. Carbon capture sources may include a combination of CO2 removal (e.g., DAC and biomass carbon removal and storage (BiCRS)), and point sources (e.g., industrial and power generation). Carbon dioxide may be transported to a combination of one or more geologic storage location(s) and/or one or more CO2 conversion location(s). DOE will give priority to projects using anthropogenic CO2 paired with geologic storage or CO2 conversion. DOE plans to also give priority to projects sited in different regions that will provide DOE with an increased understanding of the diversity of CO2 transport costs, transport modes, transport network configurations, and technical, regulatory, and commercial considerations that will inform DOE’s R&D strategies and encourage commercial-scale deployment of CCS and CDR.

Applicants must describe a:

  • Base Project consisting of a large-capacity, common carrier infrastructure that would transport quantities of captured CO2, (from anthropogenic sources or the ambient air) for which firm commercial commitments are in place for CO2 supply and offtake; and an
  • Expanded Project consisting of a large-capacity, common carrier infrastructure with the capacity to transport an increased flow rate of CO2 compared to the Base Project.

CO2 transport systems described in the Base Project and Expanded Project must consist of a transport network that is physically connected by way of pipeline, rail, road, and/or body of water. Applicants may propose projects that use one or multiple modes of CO2 transport infrastructure (e.g., pipelines, rail, truck, ships, or barge). Existing infrastructure that is currently transporting CO2 does not qualify as a Base Project; however, re-purposing existing infrastructure for CO2 service does qualify as a Base Project.

There are three phases in this opportunity:

  • Phase 1 – Detailed Project Planning
  • Phase 2 – Project Development, Permitting, and Financing
  • Phase 3 – Procurement, Construction, and Commissioning

The proposed prime recipient and subrecipient(s) must be domestic entities.
