About Us

The National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) is responding to the call for the development of cost-effective CO2 capture technologies for coal-fired power generation. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the NCCC provides first-class facilities to test developers’ technologies for extended periods under commercially representative conditions with coal-derived flue gas and syngas, thereby accelerating development of cost-effective CO2 capture technologies and ensuring continued use of coal for power generation.

The NCCC will test and evaluate CO2 control technologies including CO2 capture solvents, mass-transfer devices, low cost water-gas shift reactors, scaled-up membrane technologies, and improved means of CO2 compression. Because of the ability to operate under a wide range of flow rates and process conditions, research at the NCCC can effectively evaluate technologies at various levels of maturity. The two main areas of research include pre-combustion CO2 capture and post-combustion CO2 capture.
