The Navy Decarbonization Research Consortium is a public-private collaboration that aims to advance interdisciplinary research to help the U.S. Navy meet the complex challenges of platform decarbonization, with a focus on ships and aircraft, according to the consortium website. As part of this initiative, Penn State Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Brian Fronk and Professor of Mechanical Engineering Jacqueline O’Connor, have received a three-year, $2 million grant from the Office of Naval Research to develop a shipboard carbon-capture system for use with naval gas turbines. Penn State Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering Adri van Duin will also assist with the research.
