Molecule by molecule: How carbon capture cuts CO2 emissions

Comments off 1079 Views0

Extracting carbon dioxide molecules from a stream of exhaust before the CO2 enters the atmosphere is easier said than done… and it’s not even that easily said.

But, carbon capture and storage (CCS), which also doesn’t roll off the tongue, has the potential to transform the way power plants reduce CO2 emissions. Using CCS technology in a 500-megawatt power plant could eliminate enough CO2 to offset the amount of greenhouse gases that hundreds of thousands of cars produce each year.

The oil and natural gas industry has used CCS for years, but a collaboration between FuelCell Energy and ExxonMobil is developing a new CCS technology that could also produce additional power while removing CO2 emissions.

Check out how carbon capture can reduce the CO2 emissions at a power plant and how that compares to emissions from the automotive and residential sectors.
