The Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded $72 million in funds to 27 projects for the development of carbon capture technologies meant to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Eighteen projects will receive $21 million to build materials and technologies designed to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, DOE said Tuesday.

The department has earmarked $51 million to nine projects for the provision of initial engineering studies for approaches that will capture carbon dioxide from industrial sites.

"The primary mission of our office is to ensure that the United States can continue to rely on its fossil fuel resources for clean and secure energy," said Steven Winberg, assistant secretary for fossil energy at DOE.

Winberg added the department seeks to mature and commercialize the technologies to the market.
