Black & Veatch Awarded DOE Funding for Direct Air Capture Tech R&D - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Black & Veatch has received a federal funding from the Department of Energy to join a project initiated to advance direct air capture technology through research and development.

Under a $2.5 million funding, the company will design a DAC system intended to gather 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions on a yearly basis, Black & Veatch said Monday.

The R&D project is part of DOE’s total $12 million investment in six DAC technology initiatives. The department wants to boost DAC technology’s CO2 capture capacity, drive efficiencies and reduce associated material costs.

Black & Veatch’s DAC system will build on existing air capture technology made by Global Thermostat, then undergo testing at Bucks, Alabama; Goose Creek, Illinois; and Odessa, Texas.

“This DOE-funded cost-share project will enable Black & Veatch and our partners to scale Global Thermostat’s technology and ready it for global commercial adoption for CO2 sequestration and CO2 utilization such as producing carbon neutral synthetic e-fuels, and for carbon negative power generation applications,” said Jason Rowell, director of global decarbonization solutions at Black & Veatch.

Global Thermostat’s modular DAC technology recently underwent an assessment with Black & Veatch for an undisclosed customer, with engineering design activities scheduled to begin later this year and to run for 18 months.
