According to the agency, FEED studies for commercial carbon capture systems is necessary to fully understand and reduce the costs of these systems and is the next step toward wide-scale deployment of the technology.
The DOE notes CCUS systems are proven to significantly reduce carbon emissions from power plants that use coal and gas. For example, the Petra Nova Project, which is supported by DOE and located near Houston, Texas, has captured more than 1 million tpy of CO2 since coming online in 2017.
