NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The U.S. Department of Energy says it has picked Yale University for a $1.5 million project to develop technologies to store carbon dioxide.

The project is among 15 at a cost of $21.3 million over three years nationally to help develop technology to store carbon dioxide in geologic formations. Officials say the projects selected Wednesday will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop and use near-zero emission coal technologies.

Yale will study questions about the chemical and mechanical processes for carbonation to be practical on a large scale.

Geologic storage is focused on depleted oil and gas reservoirs, saline formations, unmineable coal seams and other areas.
