SoCalGas and PNNL receive $300,000 DOE funding


Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have received $300,000 in funding to advance an integrated carbon capture and conversion to methanol (ICCCM) process.

The funding will be used to design, fabricate and demonstrate a modular ICCCM prototype for the combined capture and conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) into methanol. The unit will be designed for installation at an industrial CO2 source. 

“As we look for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in support of the state’s climate goals, we will need to develop cost-effective technologies that can capture and use CO2 to prevent it from reaching the atmosphere,” said Yuri Freedman, Senior Director of Business Development for SoCalGas.
