BENCH SCALE TESTING OF DIRECT AIR CAPTURE COMPONENTS
BENCH SCALE TESTING OF DIRECT AIR CAPTURE COMPONENTS (TRL 3) AND INITIAL ENGINEERING DESIGN FOR CARBON CAPTURE, UTILIZATION AND STORAGE SYSTEMS FROM AIR (TRL 6)
ORGANIZATION NAMEU.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
AGENCY OR GRANT #DE-FOA-0002402
DESCRIPTIONThis Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is specifically focused on developing lower cost, scalable technologies for CO2 capture from air. There are two areas of interest (AOI):AOI-1. Bench-Scale Testing of Structured Material Systems or Component Designs at Technology Readiness Level (TRL 3) for Optimized direct air capture. The objective of the AOI-1 bench-scale Research & Development (R&D) effort is to advance promising structured material systems or component designs for Direct Air Capture (DAC) to a sufficient maturity level that can justify their scale- up in a subsequent program. AOI-2. Initial Engineering Design of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage Systems (TRL 6) for Direct Air Capture. The objective of the AOI-2 is to complete an initial design of a commercial-scale, Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage system for Direct Air Capture (CCUS-DAC) that separates, and stores or utilizes, a minimum of 100,000 tonne/yr. net CO2 from air.
