ARPA-E Announces $35 Million for Technologies to Reduce Methane Emissions
ARPA-E today announced up to $35 million for a new program focused on developing technologies to reduce methane emissions in the oil, gas, and coal industries, Reducing Emissions of Methane Every Day of the Year (REMEDY).
REMEDY projects will specifically address three target methane production sources in the oil, gas, and coal value chain: (1) exhaust from natural gas-fired lean-burn engines, used to drive compressors, generate electricity, and increasingly repower ships; (2) flares required for safe operation of oil and gas facilities; and (3) coal mine ventilation air methane (VAM) exhausted from operating underground mines.
REMEDY funding will be spread across two phases of the program over three years. Phase 1 focuses on confirming the operability of technical proposals, approaches, and system components. Following a down-select, Phase 2 teams will confirm performance in a limited field test or in larger, extended-lab-scale test environments.
