Efficiently and affordably capturing CO2 from utility scale power generation is a global challenge and a large potential market opportunity. Conventional carbon capture technologies use power and represent an expense. FuelCell Energy and ExxonMobil are advancing a novel application for installing carbonate fuel cells at combustion-based power plants to efficiently capture CO2 while simultaneously producing power from the fuel cells. Affordable and scalable, fuel cell carbon capture is a potential game-changer.
This presentation will explain fuel cell carbon capture supported with discussion of a demonstration project to be placed at Plant Barry, a mixed coal/gas-fired plant owned by Alabama Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company.
