Carbon Mitigation Initiative

Tenth Year Annual Report: Carbon Capture

The goal of the Capture Group is to develop cost-effective strategies to advance a low-carbon energy economy. Originally focused on producing hydrogen and electricity from fossil fuels with CO2 capture and storage (CCS), the research of the Williams Group has expanded to include synfuels and electricity derived from coal or natural gas co-processed with biomass and combined with CCS. The Williams Group has also investigated low carbon electricity strategies involving the coupling of wind power to natural gas via compressed energy storage.

Recently, a "scouting" research effort on energy storage technologies has been initiated by the Arnold Group to promote integration of renewable energy into the energy system.
