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


Are Fuel Cells the Answer to Coal Power Plant CO2 Capture?

October 3rd, 2011 | by Andrew

Fuel cells may hold the key to solving the increasingly urgent problem of how to capture CO2 emissions from coal-fired and other fossil fuel plants, at least that's what fuel cell proponents assert and the US Dept. of Energy (DOE) intends to find out by conducting a 3-year study and awarding $3 million to FuelCell Energy


Hydrogen for 200 Million Vehicles: Air Products/Orange County Open Wastewater-Hydrogen Fuel Plant

August 17th, 2011 | by Andrew

A new Air Products hydrogen fueling plant at the Orange County Sanitation District wastewater facility in Fountain Valley, California is producing clean, renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel and heat for use on-site and in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The wastewater-biogas-power-and-fuel plant could open up significant opportunities to use similar designs and technology to manage water and process agricultural, food and brewery waste streams.
