17 new projects on carbon capture and storage funded in first open call

July 1, 2022

The Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture distributed the first round of funding for 17 new research projects across several departments at Yale. The awards range from small seed grants to large collaborative projects that include scientists from various disciplines, countries, and universities. The projects range from investigating the effects of lianas on a forest’s ability to store carbon, to finding new ways for turning carbon dioxide into sustainable plastics, to investigating rock weathering. 

The projects include researchers at all career stages and the funding supports PhD students, new postdoc positions, and opportunities for recent graduates. Students will be involved in various projects and results will be presented at next year’s spring symposium.
