Cormetech Awarded Grant by the DOE to Improve Carbon Capture Technology

Cormetech has been selected for an award from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) to Increase the amount of CO2 captured in DAC operations.  Cormetech plans to develop a DAC contactor, the process and material through which air and CO2 is moved and captured, that will maximize the amount of CO2 captured from the atmosphere, while reducing the amount of energy needed to operate.  

From the DOE funding announcement (06/15/2021):

“‘Across the U.S., in states like Arizona and North Carolina, brilliant innovators are developing Direct Air Capture technologies that can extract carbon dioxide straight out of the air,’ said Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. ‘These DOE investments, and the ones we will make with President Biden’s American Jobs Plan, are crucial to advancing technology that will help us avoid the worst effects of climate change and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.’”
