NET Power Natural Gas Generating Plant Captures Its Own Emissions
Nov. 14, 2022
NET Power, based in Durham, North Carolina, has developed a new way to make electricity by burning natural gas that it says is cheaper than conventional gas generation. That’s good news, sort of, but the real benefit of the new Allam cycle technology is that it captures its own carbon dioxide emissions, which can then be sequestered or sold. The net result (hence the company name) is electricity from natural gas or renewable gas that doesn’t spew carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere.
