We Can Achieve Net Zero CO2

NET Power Makes Every
Current Fossil Fuel Power Plant
Economically and Environmentally Obsolete

The missing puzzle piece for getting to 100% clean power

March 28, 2020
Across the country, dozens of cities and states have passed laws or resolutions targeting 100 percent carbon-free electricity — most recently 20 communities in Utah and the state of Virginia.

Inside ‘Project Odessa,’ an experiment in greener fossil-fuel power

March 16, 2020
Capturing carbon dioxide and storing it underground seems a no-brainer, according to the new calculus of a changing climate. But it has a dirty downside: It burns a lot of energy, which typically means it spews a lot of other pollutants.

Texas should lead in promoting carbon capture regulation [Opinion]

Nov 29, 2019
Few places can match Texas’ experience with oil and gas exploration. From Spindletop and the dawn of the oil era to George Mitchell and the rise of hydraulic fracturing, Texas has led the way in energy exploration innovation.

300-MW Natural Gas Allam Cycle Power Plant Targeted for 2022

Nov 27, 2019
Testing continues at NET Power for a much-watched project that is demonstrating the production of low-carbon natural gas power. The project is using a supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) cycle…

First-of-a-kind CCS gas plant moves ahead

Nov 27, 2019

A partner in NET Power LLC said it’s evaluating sites for a commercial version of the natural gas power plant it labeled a “great success” as a pilot project in Texas that aims for near-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate policy needs negative carbon-dioxide emissions

Dec 5, 2019

On one side of a utility road at the edge of Drax power station in Yorkshire sits a vast pile of deep black coal. On the other side, trains loaded to the brim with compressed wood pellets. “The old and the new,” says a worker.

Spanish oil and gas company vows to become a net-zero emitter of carbon

50MWth Demonstration Facility Proves Zero Emissions

Patented Thermodynamic Cycle

The Allam-Fetvedt
Cycle
Allam-Fetvedt Cycle: The Next Generation of Thermal Power Generation From Natural & Renewable Gas

Bringing Clean, Abundant Energy For Everyone.

The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle:

  • Zero air emissions
  • No water
  • Captures 100% CO2

A huge accomplishment.

And the cycle doesn’t just reduce the world’s carbon footprint. It also lowers the price of energy.

“It’s not where we come from but where we are going: NET Power converts natural and renewable gas into ZERO emissions POWER."

The 5 Allam-Fetvedt Cycle Advantages

01 – ZERO EMISSIONS

02

Lower
Power Costs

Since the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle uses CO2 instead of steam to drive its turbine, the efficiency and life spans of NET Power plants are better than natural gas power plants. This also lowers construction costs, since Allam-Fetvedt Cycle plants are small in size.

03

Complement To
Renewables

With the ramping flexibility of a natural gas “peaker” plants, NET Power is the perfect zero-emission complement for intermittent renewable energy.

04

Cleaner, Cheaper
Energy Storage

Storing energy is always a tradeoff. NET Power can integrate oxygen to the effect of creating a 30-65 MW battery capable of up to 4 days of grid output at one-tenth the cost of the most advanced, but potentially environmentally-harming industrial batteries.

05

Cheapest Carbon
Capture

Converting natural and renewable gases into clean and efficient power through our system unlocks a way to capture clean, industrially useful CO2 enabling a new economy around CO2 as a valuable industrial product rather than emitting greenhouse gas.

Carbon capture should be inherent and CO2 too valuable to waste.

We make every fossil fuel power plant economically and environmentally obselete

No NOX or SOX means we can build anywhere
CO2 capture for less than $2 per tonne means we can offer up entirely new uses and markets for CO2 – building materials, zero-carbon fuels, carbon nanotubes, sequestration, and mineralization.
