Carbon Matchmaker

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Fossil Energy and Carbon Management announces Carbon Matchmaker, an online information resource to connect users across the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) supply chains

The Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management is focused on advancing carbon management technologies to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through strong public-private partnerships and in a just and sustainable way. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) enables this mission by directing over $12 billion dollars for carbon management research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) over the next 5 years. 

In support of this deployment effort, Carbon Matchmaker is an online information resource to connect users across the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) supply chains. 

Carbon Matchmaker will

  • Enable a teaming mechanism to support geographically diverse CCUS/CDR projects across the United States.
  • Increase awareness and facilitate development of regional carbon management hubs, including alongside hydrogen hub development where relevant. 
  • Provide community, industry, and technology development stakeholders domestically and internationally with carbon dioxide supply and demand maps for current and planned projects.
  • Highlight past and currently funded DOE carbon management projects in a geospatial map.

A regional carbon management hub is a network of carbon dioxide sources, potential or actual carbon dioxide end-users, and connective transport infrastructure located in close proximity.

Carbon Matchmaker Self-Identification Form

To include your carbon management activity or activities in Carbon Matchmaker, please fill out the Carbon Matchmaker Form.

If your organization has many ongoing or planned activities that would be onerous to enter in the form, or if your activities are difficult to geolocate (such as a transport network), please email the CO2 Matchmaker team at edxgeodata@netl.doe.gov.

This initiative is aligned with the approach of DOE’s H2 Matchmaker. Read more information on H2 Matchmaker.

How to Use the Carbon Matchmaker Tool

  1. Complete the Carbon Matchmaker Self-Identification Form. The Carbon Matchmaker is typically updated weekly and on an as-needed basis.
  2. Use the map application to search self-identified activities and Department of Energy funded carbon capture utilization and storage activities of interest to you. 
  3. Click on the marker to access contact information for each activity. It is recommended to contact these carbon management entities directly for teaming and partnering purposes.
  4. Check back frequently to find additional matches as new self-identified contributions are added.

Carbon Matchmaker is intended to help facilitate regional carbon management team formation by allowing carbon management producers, end-users, and other stakeholders to self-identify and align potential needs in specific geographic areas within the United States. All data presented on this map were self-reported by interested stakeholders and were not furnished by DOE. DOE does not recommend, endorse, or otherwise evaluate the qualifications or validity of any entities or data that were self-reported on this platform. DOE will not fund the provision of any information, nor will it compensate any applicants or requesting organizations for the development of such information.

About Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management

The Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) is made up of about 750 federal employees—scientists, engineers, technicians, and administrative staff. Its headquarters offices are in downtown Washington, DC, and in Germantown, Maryland. The organization also includes the National Energy Technology Laboratory with offices in Morgantown, W. Va., Pittsburgh, PA, Sugar Land, TX, Albany, OR, and Anchorage, AK; and the Strategic Petroleum Reserve based in New Orleans, LA. 

FECM is responsible for Federal research, development, and demonstration efforts on advancing technologies to meet our climate goals and minimize the environmental impacts of fossil fuel use, including low carbon power generation and low carbon supply chains; carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies; methane emissions reductions; critical mineral productions; and carbon dioxide removal. It also manages the Nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve, an emergency response tool to protect Americans from energy supply disruptions. The Office is committed to improving the conditions of communities impacted by the legacy of fossil fuel use and to supporting a healthy economic transition that accelerates the growth of good-paying jobs.
