Submission Deadline for Full Application: 4/21/2023. DE-FOA-0002756

Rare Earth Element Demonstration Facility Funding Opportunity

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $156 million in funding from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for a first-of-a-kind facility to extract and separate rare earth elements (REE) and critical minerals (CM) from unconventional sources like mining waste. Submission Deadline for Full Application: 11/21/2022

Carbon Storage and Validation Testing

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $2.25 billion in funding toward the development of new and expanded large-scale, commercial carbon storage projects with capacities to store 50 or more million metric tons of CO2, along with associated CO2 transport infrastructure. Projects will focus on detailed site characterization, permitting, and construction stages of project development under CarbonSAFE. Submission Deadline for Full Application: 11/28/2022

Carbon Capture Demonstration Projects Program

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) in partnership with the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced up to $2.54 billion to develop six integrated carbon capture, transport, and storage demonstration projects that can be readily replicated and deployed at fossil energy power plants and major industrial sources of CO2, such as cement, pulp and paper, iron and steel, and certain types of chemical production facilities. This current funding opportunity provides up to $189 million for up to 20 integrated front-end engineering design studies, with a second FOA expected later in 2022 to support detailed design, construction, and operation of carbon capture projects, as well as transport and storage of the captured CO2. Submission Deadline for Letter of Intent: 10/21/2022. Submission Deadline for Full Application: 12/5/2022.
