Alstom in U.S. CO2 capture project
PARIS Feb 27 (Reuters) - French industrial engineer Alstom (ALSO.PA) said on Wednesday it launched a CO2 capture project with U.S. partners Electric Power Research Institute and We Energies based in Pleasant Praire in Wisconsin.
The project uses chilled ammonia to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal-fuelled power plants.
Alstom designed, constructed and will operate the 1.7 megawatt system that captures CO2 from a portion of coal-fired boiler flue gas at Pleasant Prairie Power Plant, a 1,224 MW coal-fired generating station.
Alstom said its system had demonstrated in laboratory testing a potential to capture more than 90 percent of CO2 at a cost that is far less than other carbon capture technologies. (Reporting by Marcel Michelson; Editing by Erica Billingham)
