New Mexico carbon capture project receives $22m


A carbon capture project at San Juan Generating Station has received $22m from the Department of Energy (DOE) cooperative funding agreement awarded to the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (New Mexico Tech).

The funding will pay for analysis of a site in northwest New Mexico to accelerate deployment of carbon capture, utilisation and storage technology at San Juan Generation Station. 

Data and analyses produced under the agreement will be used to prepare, submit and attain a permit from the Environmental Protection Agency to potentially construct a CO2 injection well, that would allow for geologic sequestration of 50 million metric tonnes of CO2 at a site near the power plant.
