WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 12th February, 2021) The White House on Thursday established a new climate innovation working group and earmarked $100 billion in Energy Department funding for research on emission reducing technology.
“The working group will help coordinate and strengthen Federal government-wide efforts to foster affordable, game-changing technologies that can help America achieve the President’s goal of net zero economy-wide emissions by 2050,” the White House said in a press release on Thursday.
The technologies include zero net carbon buildings made with carbon-neutral construction materials, sustainable fuel for planes and ships, as well as carbon-capture retrofits for existing industrial and power plant exhausts, the release said.
Much of the research would likely be conducted by a planned Advanced Research Projects Agency-Climate (ARPA-C) organization that Biden pledged to create earlier, the release added.
