News-- Can 1 Power Plant Clean Up Coal and Make Money?


De Kalb, Miss. -The Kemper County Energy Facility is nearing completion, with hundreds of construction workers on-site and Mississippi Power, the developers of the plant say they are on track with a May 2015 operation date. The plant, which will capture 65 percent of the CO2 from the 582-megawatt gasification power plant is planning to begin capturing CO2 at the gasification plant this fall. Kemper could open the door for CO2 capture with countries like Poland and India with low-rank coals, by lowering costs for the second generation of plants. If TRIG and its attached capture unit work well, it also could help similar plants "blossom in China."

News-- Texas carbon capture venture aims to boost oil production


San Francisco- NRG Energy and Japan's JX Nippon on July 15 announced plans to capture carbon emissions from NRG's WA Parish power plant and use the pollution to boost oil production at the West Ranch Oil Field.

News - Carbon Capture’s Perfect Storm


Washington D.C.-Carbon dioxide is best known as a pollutant, a greenhouse gas notorious for its contributions to climate change, but it can also be a valuable commodity.  Companies have been using naturally-occurring carbon dioxide for decades to force more oil out of the ground after they have retrieved all they can with pumps and by injecting water or gas. But as those natural formations of carbon are depleted, oil producers have started looking to commercial sources that capture and sell their carbon emissions.This has created a oppurtunity for CO2 enhanced oil recovery, an option that could make carbon capture a regular practice in the power or industrial sectors

News-- Texas Cash-From-Carbon Program Lures Climate Skeptic


San Antonio -Instead of letting carbon dioxide escape from the plant and contribute to global warming, Jones’s Skyonic Corp. is spending $128 million to convert the gas into baking soda and hydrochloric acid that can be sold to the cattle and oil industries. John Thompson of Clean Air Task Force says what is significant about Skyonic is that they are going commercial with it, they will make money with it, and that gets them to the next stage of development.

News-- Coal burns brighter as utilities switch from natural gas al- and gas-fired power plants


Washington D.C. -Utilities are shifting to coal as gas moves to a four-year high. Coal is the fastest growing energy source in the world, driven by China's indsutrial growth.

News - In Depth: The Debate Over the EPA's New Carbon Capture Climate Scheme


Washington D.C.-EPA's new carbon pollution standards on new coal plants meets controversy from some environmentalists and industry.  EPA says the rule sends a clear signal that CCS is the future of new coal technology and is the best way to cut emissions from coal plants.

News-- New EPA rules: Coal's future depends on cheap carbon capture


Washington D.C.- EPA's new regulations on new coal plants rests heavily on the success of carbon capture and storage technologies. Supporters of the new rules say the regulations will spur companies to develop and implement CCS technologies on new coal plants, eventually making CCS competitive with wind and natural gas.

News-- EPA moves to limit emissions of future coal- and gas-fired power plants


Washington D.C. -The EPA will strictly limit the amount of carbon dioxide emissions on new coal-fired power plants. These limits will make it difficult for any new coal plant to be built without CCS technology. With China and India building dozens of new coal plants at an accelerated rate, the development of CCS technology serves the world's interests.

News-- Scaling up CCS in China


China-In China, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is widely recognized as the most important technology to achieve a deep cut in CO2 emissions. China plays an important role in the cost reduction and development of key low-carbon technologies. China has significantly lower labor costs, the availability of skilled engineers and a fast timeline in developing infrastructure projects. A number of projects in China have started to test CO2 injection, but there is still a lack of a regulatory framework and studies on risk mitigation and financial risk transfer for storage activities.

News-- Southern Company CEO defends Plant Ratcliffe


Mississippi- Southern Company's CEO Tom Fanning, defended Plant Ratcliffe's cost overruns of $540M and defended the project as a long-term investment for Southern Company.
