How Texas carbon capture can restore American energy dominance

The Washington Examiner, Feb. 12, 2024

The carbon capture technology developed by NET Energy and tested at its prototype natural gas power plant in La Porte, Texas, has caused quite a bit of discussion. The prototype plant uses a technology called Allam Cycle that uses the carbon dioxide that is belched into the atmosphere with conventional power plants to turn the turbines before being sequestered into the ground.  

About a year ago, NET announced it would start to build commercial-size carbon capture plants, one of which is to be located near Odessa, Texas. The plant will run on natural gas extracted from the nearby Permian Basin. It will thus use fossil fuels to generate much-needed electricity without contributing to climate change and without relying on unreliable renewable energy, such as solar and wind.
