The project will include examining a range of scenarios that considers various mixes of a wide range of decarbonization technology options including, but not limit to a). zero carbon emitting technologies, b). carbon capture from large carbon emitting point sources (e.g., electricity generation and industrial sources using fossil or biomass resources as fuel or feedstock) and c) carbon capture directly from ambient air.

Why should I apply? You will enhance your education and training in clean coal and carbon management, increase your marketability in these disciplines, collaborate with top scientists and engineers, and gain insight into career opportunities through your experiences and under the leadership of your mentor.
