Colorado School of Mines wins research grant

The Colorado School of Mines has been selected for a $510,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy to develop technologies aimed at safely and economically storing carbon dioxide underground in geologic formations.

"The projects announced today are part of this Administration's commitment to leading the world in carbon capture and storage technology," said DOE Secretary Steven Chu. "These projects will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, develop clean energy innovation and help produce jobs for Americans across the Nation."

The research will be conducted over three years.
