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.
Researchers in UK's Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) have received a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory to develop an intensified process to significantly reduce the capital and operational costs associated with CO2 capture.
UK will receive over $940,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy and the National Energy Technology Laboratory to advance its world-renowned carbon dioxide capture research and development.
