4) Department of Energy – Applications for Technologies Directed at Utilizing Carbon Dioxide from Coal Fired Power Plants

The goal of the Carbon Storage Program of the U.S. Department of Energy is to develop and advance both onshore and offshore carbon storage technologies that will significantly improve the effectiveness of the technology, reduce the cost of implementation, and be ready for widespread commercial deployment in the 2025–2035 time frame.
