In October 2009 the Battelle Memorial Institute's Pacific Northwest Division was awarded a $500,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for a Carbon Capture and Storage demonstration project. (Battelle is a non-profit research organization headquartered in Ohio).
The DOE's media release stated that "Battelle researchers will partner with Boise White Paper LLC and Fluor Corporation to demonstrate geologic CO2 storage in deep flood basalt formations in the State of Washington. Fluor Corporation will design a customized version of its Econamine Plus™ carbon capture technology for operation with the specialized chemical composition of exhaust gases produced from combustion of black liquor fuels."
