Established in Wilsonville, Alabama by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Carbon Capture Center tests advanced carbon capture technologies for combustion and gasification in coal-fired power plants. This report discusses 2016 test activities with technologies such as solvents, sorbents, catalysts, and membranes for pre- and post-combustion capture.
One proposed option for reducing fossil power plant CO₂ emissions involves capturing them for use in producing chemicals, fuels, and other commercial products. This study describes the mechanisms, R&D status, and technical hurdles of CO₂ conversion and use.
