For over a century, the National Energy Technology Laboratory has been a world-class center of innovation with global impact across the energy sector and beyond. Today, NETL continues to address critical energy, infrastructure, and manufacturing challenges by accelerating cutting-edge technology solutions to achieve the government’s net zero carbon emissions goals for 2035 and 2050. NETL works closely with the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management to implement DOE programs resulting in a broad intramural and extramural research and development portfolio focused on carbon management and resource sustainability. This presentation will provide an overview of the laboratory and our unique role within the national laboratory ecosystem. Recent activities in two growing areas – carbon dioxide removal and critical minerals – are highlighted to demonstrate the lab’s capabilities and collaborations with industry, universities, and other national laboratories.
