DOE Commits $6 Billion to Decarbonize Domestic Manufacturing

33 projects expect to prevent 3 million cars worth of emissions per year.

The Department of Energy announced this week that it is investing $6 billion to reduce emissions in manufacturing. Many manufacturing processes are difficult to decarbonize, especially within the construction and food sectors.

This investment will fund 33 projects that implement effective new technologies to begin addressing these industrial emissions. If effective, the department expects that the projects will prevent more than 14 million metric tons of carbon emissions per year, equal to removing 3 million gas-powered cars off the roads annually.

“Spurring on the next generation of decarbonization technologies in key industries like steel, paper, concrete, and glass will keep America the most competitive nation on Earth,” Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated. She added that this was the “largest investment in industrial decarbonization in the history of the United States.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For prudence for Secretary Granholm and Energy Department officials as they allocate funding for decarbonization.
  • For the president and members of his administration to receive God’s guidance as they pursue climate goals.
