Carbon-Capture Technology

Duke investigates Chinese carbon capture technology
February 13, 2012 - Duke Energy has agreed with the China Huaneng Group on a study to determine if the Chinese company’s carbon-capture technology can be installed on Duke’s Gibson Steam Station in Indiana.

Duke makes clear that it is not committing to install the technology. This is just a feasibility study. But it acknowledges that it could eventually lead to using Huaneng’s process to trap carbon at Gibson or other U.S. plants.

Once trapped, the gas can be sequestered to prevent it from adding to greenhouse gas emissions.

“Basically, this is the next step in our relationship with Huaneng,” says Duke spokesman Tom Shiel.

First agreement
