UNDEERC Awarded $500,000 for North Dakota CCS Project (Funding)
UNDEERC
Date: 2020-06-10
Reporting from Bismarck, the North Dakota Industrial Commission reports it has awarded $500,000 in Renewable Energy Programme funding to the Energy & Environmental Research Centre at the University of North Dakota (UNDEERC) for the development of North Dakota's ethanol and carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility near Richardson.

Research for the facility will build on the successful outcomes of three phases of work which have been carried out since 2016. A CO2 Storage Facility Permitting Guidance Document will be compiled as part of the project to serve as a resource for other North Dakota renewable energy or biofuel producers interested in pursuing utilization of CCS technology, according to the release. "This project continues to help maximize the marketability of North Dakota ethanol through evolving CCS incentive programmes," the commission noted in a statement.

UND EERC Advancing Project Tundra CCS Project (Ind. Report)
North Dakota Energy & Environmental Research Center
Date: 2020-05-22
The University of North Dakota Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) reports it has been awarded nearly $17 million last month from the U.S. DOE Office of Fossil Energy for a project that will directly support Project Tundra, a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) research and development project led by Grand Forks-based Minnkota Power Cooperative. The EERC is the lead on the CarbonSAFE effort, which is a facet of the project that is looking at CO2 storage options for Project Tundra, according to the release.

Another $7.9 million in non-DOE funding from the North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC), through Minnkota, as well as Computer Modelling Group Ltd. and Schlumberger, brings the total funding to $24.9 million for the CarbonSAFE Phase III project. DOE recently awarded a total of $131 million for cost-shared R&D CCUS projects in the U.S.

Project Tundra is currently in the advanced R&D phase. If the project moves forward, construction will commence in 2022–2023.

$7Mn Awarded for Geological Carbon Storage R&D (Funding)
Office of Fossil Energy,NETL
Date: 2018-08-31
Kallanish Energy is reporting the US DOE Office of Fossil Energy has awarded $7 million in grants to the University of Illinois and the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks to advance the development and validation of geological CO2 storage technologies.

The two projects will be managed by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). The University of Illinois will focus on reservoirs and residual oil zones in the Illinois Basin in three states. The university received $3.4 million in federal funds and will provide $917,881 in matching funds.

The University of North Dakota Energy & Environmental Research Center (UNDEERC) will establish the Williston Basin CO2 Field Laboratory in the South Central Cut Bank oilfield in Montana. The NDEERC received $3.4 million in federal funds and will provide $873,926 in matching funds.

Since 1997, DOE's Carbon Storage program portfolio includes industry cost-shared technology development projects, university research grants, collaborative work with other national laboratories, and research conducted in-house through the NETL Research & Innovation Center. The Carbon Storage program incorporates: Core Storage Research and Development; Storage Infrastructure; and Strategic Program Support to address significant technical challenges in order to meet program goals that support the scale-up and widespread deployment of CCS.

UNDEERC CO2 Emissions Project Scores $6Mn Funding (Funding)
University of North Dakota
Date: 2018-02-19
In Grand Forks, the University of North Dakota Energy and Environmental Research Center (UNDEERC) is reporting receipt of $6 million in US DOE funding for Project Tundra, an ongoing EERC initiative to develop technology to reduce coal-fired power plant carbon dioxide emissions and to retrofit the Milton R. Young Station, near Center, N.D. with a carbon capture system.

The $6 million grant would also cover a feasibility study to determine if the carbon capture technology is commercially viable for use at other facilities. The carbon capture effort comes alongside other research at the EERC intended to make coal and natural gas-fired power plants more efficient using Allam Cycle technology.

Project Tundra is seen as instrumental to preserving North Dakota's energy sector, which includes a major base in lignite coal. (Source: UND EERC, Grand Forks Herald, 17 Feb., 2018) Contact: UNDEERC, (701) 777-5000, www.undeerc.org
