Department of Energy to Provide $2.2 Million to Support HBCUs for Environmental Remediation and Green Energy Research

The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) announced it will provide $2.2 in support of HBCUs and MSIs for environmental remediation and green energy research.

According to a DoE release, the money will be used for carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) research to generate low-carbon power. The funding to HBCUs is part of two funding opportunities that total $6.1 million to the DoE’s University Coal Research program.

Combined, the funding opportunities will support up to 20 student engineers and scientists working between 2-3 years on research projects related to technologies critical to advancing and acting on President Joe Biden’s goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
