Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), commonly referred to as Berkeley Lab, is a United States national laboratory located in the Berkeley Hills near Berkeley, California USA, that conducts scientific research on behalf of the United States Department of Energy (DOE). It is managed and operated by the University of California.
Dr. Jeffrey R. Long is Senior Faculty Scientist and Professor at the Department of Chemistry. The primary goal of research in the Long group is the preparation and characterization of novel porous solids, such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). LBNL, as part of the Discovery of Carbon Capture Substance and Systems (DOCCSS) initiative funded by NETL-DOE, is developing a novel amine-based solid sorbent for CO₂ capture from flue gas. The sorbent consists of an amine-appended MOF.
In 2018, Inventys and LBNL (via ICS3 consortium with Electricore) engaged in a potential collaboration as an industrial partner to develop and test a novel carbon capture system using DOCCSS advanced solid sorbent material for the separation of CO₂.
