A research team led by Assistant Professor Brian Ellis has received a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Net-Zero and Negative Emissions Technologies Request for Proposals (RFP).

Ellis’s team will research ways in which carbon dioxide can be utilized for geothermal energy production and renewable energy storage.

The RFP received nearly eighty submissions, and Ellis’s team is one of four to be awarded a grant.
