The U.S. Department of Energy announced this week that Arizona State University will receive federal funding to develop a Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute.
ASU will be allocated up to $70 million over the next five years for research, development and projects to help decarbonize the industrial sector.
The university will lead a multi-institution coalition called Electrified Processes for Industry Without Carbon, or EPIXC.
“Achieving the nation’s climate goals will require an all-hands-on-deck, multidimensional approach to eliminating industrial emissions,” Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Alejandro Moreno said in a press release.
“Our newest institute, EPIXC, will focus on one of the key pillars of industrial decarbonization — electrification — to dramatically slash emissions while helping to strengthen and secure America’s leadership in the global clean energy economy.”
