Carbonvert, along with Battelle, Southern Company, Sargent & Lundy and the University of Alabama, are collaborating on an exploratory study for the direct air capture and storage of CO2 emissions from a nuclear power plant. The project was awarded $2.5 million from the US Department of Energy in September 2022. This FEED study for a direct air capture system is co-located with Southern Company’s Joseph M. Farrley Nuclear Plant.
Learning for Future Projects:
In addition to researching the economic and engineering scalability of these programs, this project will include analyses on environmental safety and health, environmental justice, economic revitalization and jobs and a cradle-to-grave life cycle analysis.
