DOE Projects Aim to Reduce Manufacturing Emissions

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced it is spending more than $42 million to fund new pilot projects for the manufacturing sector to reduce carbon emissions. DOE says the industrial sector contributed 23% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2019. (Here’s a look at Ohio’s industrial CO2 emissions since 1980.)

DOE is also awarding $24 million for nine research projects to explore new methods of capturing carbon emissions directly from the air. One project will be conducted at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. 8/19/2021
