Carbon Capture, Utilization, Storage & Blue Hydrogen
In 2022, Congress authorized the $25M National Energy Technology Laboratory Direct Air Capture Center. The facility will be specifically focused on accelerating the commercialization of technologies beyond the conceptual stage that have not yet reached full pilot-scale (TRL 3 to 6).  The ability to operate over a wide range of conditions will help developers to understand how their technologies respond in different seasons and climates, from summer to winter and arid to tropical. The talk will cover the design, capabilities, and planned availability of the center.
