A new power plant in Texas,can generate energy by consuming carbon dioxide, for the first time.

NET Power is working in a new power system that generates lower-cost electricity from a form of carbon dioxide instead of steam.

Using  a patented thermodynamic cycle called the Allam Cycle, NET Power is able to generate lower-cost power from fossil fuels than existing power plants while eliminating all air emissions, including carbon dioxide.

Additionally, the CO2 that NET Power plants generate from burning fuel is produced as a high-pressure, high-quality byproduct, ready for pipeline transportation and storage.  In many places, this COcan be sold for use in enhanced oil recovery (EOR), permanently sequestering the CO2 and providing significant added value for NET Power plant owners.
