Carbon Capture and Storage-FutureGen 2.0

The objective of this Office of Fossil Energy (FE) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) program is to to award $1 billion in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to the FutureGen Industrial Alliance (Alliance), Ameren Energy Resources, Babcock & Wilcox, and Air Liquide
Process & Construction, Inc., to build FutureGen 2.0, a clean coal repowering program and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage network.

FutureGen 2.0 consists of two major projects: (1) repowering of an existing power plant for CO2 capture and (2) developing a CO2 transportation and storage system consisting of a pipeline and a deep saline injection reservoir.

Agency - Department of Energy

The Department of Energy's goal is to advance national, economic and energy security in the U.S.; to promote scientific and technological innovation in support of that goal; and to ensure environmental cleanup of the national nuclear weapons complex.

Program Accomplishments

Not Applicable.

Uses and Use Restrictions

Emphasis is on research, development and demonstration of CCS.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicant Eligibility

Private industry, individuals, and nonprofit organizations may apply.

Beneficiary Eligibility

These projects address the ARRA s objectives by:

• providing substantial employment opportunities for local and regional organizations, thus ensuring a well trained energy workforce,
• maintaining US scientific leadership in advanced near-zero emission technologies for fossil-fuel-based power plants,
• reducing greenhouse gas emissions through carbon capture and geologic sequestration; and
• reducing dependence on foreign oil and enhancing energy security through efficient use of abundant and secure domestic resources.

Consistent with the intent of the ARRA, in the near-term it is anticipated that these projects collectively would generate up to 750 construction jobs over a 3-4 year period and creation of 1,255 or more permanent jobs in management, operation and maintenance of the plant, pipeline and storage facility. During the projects test periods, it is estimated that a minimum of 1 million tons/year of CO2 will be delivered, transported and sequestered. Injection into the Mt. Simon formation would allow for verification of safe and permanent CO2 storage in saline formations.
