The Department of Energy issued a $10 million funding opportunity focused on developing advanced oxy-combustion technologies for carbon capture and storage that can be applied to new or retrofitted coal-based power plants. Technologies developed under the FOA may also have application to natural gas-fired power plants and industrial boilers. The agency hopes to develop systems that can achieve at least 90 percent CO2 removal at no more than a 35 percent increase in electricity cost. Applications for cost-shared research and development of pressurized oxy-combustion and chemical looping combustion systems will be accepted through April 17.
