Carbon-Based Energy Systems

Renewables pie chartFuels made from coal, natural gas and oil are responsible for emitting tons of greenhouse gas each year. The use of carbon-based fuels is expected to grow in coming decades. To address those challenges, GCEP sponsors research to reduce or eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles, power plants and other industries. Several research teams are looking at novel ways to capture CO2 from industrial smokestacks and store it permanently underground. Other groups are exploring advanced combustion technologies that improve engine efficiency while minimizing emissions. For more information on specific programs, click below.
