The PSDF now houses the National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) to address the nation’s need for cost-effective, commercially viable CO2 capture options for flue gas from pulverized coal power plants and syngas from coal gasification power plants. The NCCC will focus national efforts on reducing carbon gas emissions through technological innovation, and serve as a neutral test center for emerging carbon capture technologies.
