Description: The DOE SC program in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announces its interest in receiving applications from single investigators and from teams for support of experimental and theoretical efforts to advance fundamental understanding of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from dilute sources including combined capture and chemical conversion of CO2. Although direct air capture of carbon dioxide (DAC) generally refers to the capture of CO2 from ambient air, this FOA also considers the removal of CO2 from partially concentrated air (e.g., building HVAC exhaust) and from natural fluids (e.g., the ocean and surface waters) that received their CO2 directly from ambient air. Enhanced understanding of scientific phenomena and approaches for DAC would accelerate progress and strengthen the foundation for applications that deliver economic benefit and/or energy security.
Applicant institutions are limited to no more than two (2) pre-applications or applications as either a single-institution applicant or as the lead of a multi-institutional team. There is no limit on the number of pre-applications on which an institution may appear as a partner (not the lead institution).
Notices of Intent to Apply Due to the Research Office by 03/18/2021
