Carbon Capture Demonstration Projects Program Notice of Intent:
- The $2.54 billion Carbon Capture Demonstration Projects Program will focus on integrated carbon capture, transport, and storage technologies that can be readily replicated and deployed at fossil energy power plants and major industrial sources of CO2, such as cement, pulp and paper, iron and steel, and certain types of chemical production facilities.
- Selected projects will address technical, environmental, permitting, and financing challenges for commercial deployment. Projects will be advanced in multiple phases with a competitive down-selection between Phase 1 and Phase 2. In the first phase, front-end engineering design studies will be completed in parallel with National Environmental Policy Act and permitting compliance. Phases 2-4 call for the detailed design, construction, and operation of six facilities using integrated carbon capture and storage demonstration systems. These demonstration systems will be required to meet specific project goals including the demonstration of at least 95% carbon capture efficiency and verification of secure geologic carbon storage.
