Coal Plant + New Fuel Cell System = 90% Reduction in CO2 Emissions?

October 16th, 2011 | by Andrew

If successful, FuelCell Energy's system will separate and capture 90% or more of the CO2 emitted from a coal-fired power plant's flue stream. The CO2, along with hydrogen 'reformed' from natural gas, will be used to drive a fuel cell that produces clean electricity that will add to the plant's energy output. Nitrogen oxides (NOX), another potent greenhouse gas, will also be captured, but destroyed in the process. Emissions from the fuel cell system: water
