David Miller Receives 2014 Arthur S. Flemming Award

The Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration has selected David Miller as a recipient of the 2014 Arthur S. Flemming Award recognizing outstanding men and women in the federal government. Dr. Miller was chosen in recognition of his innovative leadership as Technical Director of the Department of Energy's Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI). Dr. Miller, who came to NETL in 2009, has led the CCSI technical team to develop the CCSI Toolset, a set of computational tools that allows industry to more rapidly develop, scale-up, and deploy carbon capture technologies. The initial release of the toolset in October 2012 was a full year ahead of schedule due to industry demand, and the subsequent releases (the latest in October 2014) have received positive feedback and are being utilized by industry. Dr. Miller's continued leadership of CCSI will greatly improve the ability of U.S. companies to develop cost-effective carbon capture and related technologies.
