Innovative technology from carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) developer NET Power could change everything about clean energy development in the U.S. and around the world.
While capturing carbon emissions from a typical natural gas plant requires a ton of extra gear, NET Power’s solution is much simpler. A NET Power plant burns gas with pure oxygen, which produces just CO2 and water. That CO2 is used to turn the turbine – rather than steam, like a normal gas plant uses – and is recycled back into the combustor.
NET Power is focusing on commercialization and global deployment, and the first commercial-scale plants could begin operation in the near future. ClearPath CEO Rich Powell explains in-depth how NET Power’s game-changing technology works:
