Cement production is the world’s second largest source of carbon dioxide emissions. CAER received a two-year, $1.3 million grant to develop extremely durable belite-based cement that is low-energy consuming and low-carbon dioxide releasing.
The Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) at UK recently began work on a major research project to investigate the unconventional oil and gas potential of the Rogersville Shale formation in Eastern Kentucky and other related formations.
The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) has received a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy to improve efficiency and reliability at existing and future coal-fired power plants.
The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) is one of eight entities to be selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to receive federal funds for research and development in "Novel and Enabling Carbon Capture Transformational Technologies" to address challenges and knowledge gaps associated with reducing the cost of carbon capture.
The project is part of DOE’s Carbon Capture Program, which is developing transformational, step-change, low-cost capture processes and enabling technologies that will maximize the efficiency of our nation's fossil-based power generation infrastructure.
