  • The Energy Blog is where all topics relating to The Energy Revolution are presented. Increasingly, expensive oil, coal and global warming are causing an energy revolution by requiring fossil fuels to be supplemented by alternative energy sources and by requiring changes in lifestyle.

Does anyone know how this project is being paid for? Is it DOE-funded, or is it entirely private funding?

Because it is being put into an existing CO2 pipeline for use in enhanced oil recovery, the CO2 actually has a market value. I don't know if the "value" is greater than the cost of separation, but at a minimum it should offset at least some of the project costs.

Dear Sirs, This CO2 capture technology is a great breakthrough! Anyway, please google "A New CO2 Elimination Tactic" and scan that idea in the Techrex (me) blog, on the 11thHourAction website, since it's a possible option for disposing of this carbon dioxide taken from the coal burning electric power plants in this way.

Hi
It's to see the coverage on this new plant proposed by Basic Electric. I do not know if this is the *first*, nor do I care about the title first, as long as they do the job correctly. I bring this up because recently ALSTOM and another company in Wisconsin announced a pilot scale project of CO2 capture from a 610 MW plant, but they are testing it only on portion of the plant and the details of the scale were not too clear from the press releases (Link: http://www.alstom.com/pr_corp_v2/2008/corp/49200.EN.php?languageId=EN&dir=/pr_corp_v2/2008/corp/&idRubriqueCourante=23132)

Will USA export the CO2 from their dirty Coal fired power plants to Canada?

We do have very neighbours, don't we?

we need to keep pushing energy independence. Every other political concern is secondary. If we want peace and a greener world we need to stop paying for oil wars and stop paying dictators for oil. If we want to revive the economy we need to stop giving our money away to oil tycoons in foreign lands. We need to spend that cash on domestic sources.

Capture of CO2 is very good, as a temporary solution, once you've captured it, you have the time to develop the technology to desintegrate the CO2, to C- carbon, and O oxygene, it is quite difficult now, but once it will be possible.
What plants do, they use CO2 and H2O, and green light (that specific vawelenght of light) to produce sugar, maybe we can do similar and produce food out of CO2, (soylent green) or if you reduce the CO2 in some way, you get a pure C which is a fuel, you can make coal out of it again.
Anyway, I think that it must be a way to destroy very hard covalent bonds in CO2, with use of solar energy of specific vawe lenght (green). CO2 is a fertile gas, it is only that we dont know yet how to use it properly.

Hi,

Approximately one million tons of CO2 will be captured annually from the 120 megawatt slipstream project, making this demonstration among the largest in the world. The captured CO2 will be fed into an existing CO2 compression and pipeline system owned by Basin Electric's wholly owned subsidiary, Dakota Gasification Company.Salt Lake City electrician

i would have loved to see this demonstration. I think this is such a great concept. this is our future.

this part of blog "The measure, opposed by private lenders and critics of an expanding federal government, was included in a package of proposed changes to an overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system." was very interesting, thank you!

This is good concept. In fact I say this is out future. I really love to see working of it. ECO2 is a post-combustion and regenerative process which uses ammonia-based solution to capture carbon-dio oxide.

Electrician

This is a big deal when it comes to carbon capture technology. I am proud that we have come this far. My dad is an electrician and has had some problems with this stuff at the plant he works at.

Hopefully this is the best technology, like you said time will tell.

Interesting that the ammonia-based solution can be regenerated to release the CO2 and ammonia without an after-effect of an ammonia by-product.

Neat information, thanks for posting it!

I thought Antelope Valley was in California? I suppose there can be more than one, one million tons of CO2 is a lot!

Never heard of this but glad that it consumes less energy.
