The Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) at Princeton University is a 10-year, 20 million dollar project sponsored by BP and Ford Motor Company. The goal of the university-industry partnership is to find solutions to the carbon and climate problem that are safe, effective and affordable. Now entering our 6th year, our researchers are speeding progress in the areas of carbon science, carbon capture, carbon storage, and carbon policy.
The Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) at Princeton University has concluded its fifth year. Having established roots in multiple departments around the university, we now have a mature research program with a strong core group of mitigation experts. Our team has made substantial progress toward achieving our original goals, in the process becoming a recognized force in the field of carbon capture and storage (CCS).
While some of our members are veterans of the carbon mitigation effort, many others were new to the field at the start of the Initiative. Over the past five years, however, CMI as a whole has become a strong presence in the CCS community. One example of this is our representation at the flagship CCS meetings, the NETL Annual Conference on Carbon Capture & Sequestration and the International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies, at which CMI researchers have presented dozens of papers.
