NET Power’s Game Changing Technology Highlighted in Forbes
The game changing technology of NET Power was featured in Forbes on July 31, where writer James Conca discusses the technology being demonstrated at a plant in La Porte, Texas.
“This is a new, high-pressure, oxy-fuel, supercritical CO2
cycle that generates low-cost electricity from fossil fuels while producing near-zero air emissions,” he writes. The NET Power plant captures all of its CO2
as part of its process, recycles some and diverts some for sale, he adds.
The technology is based on the Allam Cycle, which is a high-pressure, supercritical carbon dioxide oxy-fuel power cycle that produces cost-effective electric power with virtually zero atmospheric air emissions. Unlike other fossil fuel power generation technologies that release emissions to the atmosphere or employ expensive, add-on carbon capture systems, the primary by-product of NET Power is pipeline-quality, high-pressure carbon dioxide.
