Natural gas-fired power plants to use CO2 capture technology

Summit Power Group and The Linde Group have teamed up to develop commercial-scale natural gas-fired power plants that will capture up to 90 percent of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

A typical gas-fired power plant with carbon capture developed by the companies will produce approximately 250 MW of net electricity.

Both companies are already active in developing power projects with CO2 capture where the CO2 can be sequestered in gas fields and deep saline formations, or injected into oil fields. Summit is currently developing the Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP) in the U.S. and the Captain Clean Energy Project in the United Kingdom, while Linde is providing the technology, the engineering and construction contractor and long-term operations and maintenance to TCEP.

The newest project is expected to be announced in the coming months.
