In an effort to help reduce carbon pollution, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has allocated $135 million to fund 40 projects designed to decarbonize the industrial sector. According to the DOE, the U.S. industrial sector accounts for one-third of all energy-related domestic greenhouse gas emissions. Funding for the projects will be handled by the DOE’s Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office, and 36 different universities, National Laboratories, and companies are leading the 40 projects. According to the agency, the projects will finance research, development, and piolet projects that are engineered to reduce energy use and emissions throughout the industry. 

In a recent quote, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said, "America’s industrial sector serves as the engine of the U.S. economy, producing many of the products we rely on every day, but also produces a significant amount of the nation’s carbon emissions. These projects funded by President Biden’s Investing in American agenda will slash industrial emissions and accelerate next-generation technologies for a clean energy future that’s made in America."
