Support for the Carbon Management Research Group (CMRG), a public/private partnership consisting of most of the Commonwealth’s utilities, the Electric Power Research Institute, the Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER), and the Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI), continues by the division. The program is broken into 9 project areas with 6 projects devoted to fundamental research, 2 projects devoted to pilot scale research and one project for a semi-commercial slip stream CO2 capture system. The 9 projects are geared towards addressing the most pertinent issues facing the wide scale deployment of CO2 capture systems for post-combustion applications. In 2011, CAER was awarded a U.S. DOE cooperative agreement which will allow CMRG to pursue the project for a semi-commercial slip stream CO2 capture system, with substantial federal funding and involvement.
