NET Power To END Global Warming Scare, Burn Natural Gas Without Releasing Any Carbon Dioxide

(((OY VEY)))

What if there were an electric generating plant that burned fossil fuels but emitted no carbon dioxide? Is that something the world would be interested in? Yes, we know, CleanTechinca peeps. It would be better if we all made our own renewable energy from solar panels and stored it in batteries installed on our property, but that’s a bit of a Utopian vision at the moment. Before the future gets here in all its glory, a lot of natural gas is going to be consumed to make electricity. Why not burn it in a way that adds no carbon dioxide to the atmosphere?

Impossible, you say? Not really, according to the people behind NET Power, which has just completed a demonstration plant outside Houston. They are testing new technology that uses natural gas to generate electricity but captures 100% of the resulting carbon dioxide. Others have tried the same thing, but the electricity they generate winds up costing more than electricity from a conventional natural gas facility. NET Power says its process is cost-competitive with electricity from a traditional gas-fired plant. “We’ve designed a power plant that is cheaper and cleaner,” Chief Executive Officer Bill Brown tells Bloomberg. “Imagine that, when you have economics driving a solution rather than policy aspirations.”

The NET Power system is very different from a conventional gas-fired generating station. Instead of using steam to power a turbine, NET Power uses pressurized CO2, which increases efficiency while keeping the CO2 contained. Any excess carbon dioxide not needed to operate the plant can be sold to generate some positive cash flow. It is in used for making some plastics, chemicals, and building materials, but it is used primarily for enhanced oil recovery. By injecting it under pressure deep underground, it helps force trapped oil and gas to the surface.

According to Quartz, this is how the NET Power system works:

“In a small turbine, a combustor burns natural gas and pure oxygen—producing only carbon dioxide and water—in a chamber that’s already full of supercritical carbon dioxide at high pressure and temperature. That’s no small feat; it’s like trying to light a match while someone else is doing their best to put it out with an extinguisher. The combustion produces additional carbon dioxide, some water, and lots of heat. This hot, high-pressured mixture is then passed through a gas turbine, where the pressure turns a shaft to generate electricity.

“The slightly cooled mixture exits the turbine, then is separated into parts. The necessary amount of carbon dioxide is compressed to become supercritical again and added back to the initial chamber, keeping a steady amount of the gas circulating through the system. The remaining, pure stream of CO2 can be buried underground. And the (clean) water is dumped. The heat transfer in this process is so efficient that for each unit of energy trapped in natural gas, the Allam cycle produces 0.8 units of electricity (compared to 0.6 units produced in the most advanced natural-gas power plants).”

Bill Brown doesn’t see using the captured carbon dioxide to liberate more fossil fuels as contrary to the company’s mission. “The problem is not to keep it in the ground,” he says. “The problem is to keep it out of the air.” Continuing to use fossil fuels is fine, in other words, as long as they’re only burned in NET Power facilities. Rodney Allam, the British engineer who invented the core technology, sees it as a necessary compromise while renewables get up to speed. “We have to realize that the energy from renewables will only provide a small portion of the total world requirement for energy,” he said. “So unless we solve this problem of emission control and the burning of fossil fuels, we won’t have a sustainable future.”

Claims are claims until they're proven with PROOFS

Oh good, glad to hear ZOG's industries have another fractional increase in efficiency. Maybe the kikes will decide not to genocide our race now.

You know all you niggers, faggots, and leftycucks should that it takes 30kw of energy, gallons of dangerous chemicals just to make one "green" solar cell. So pollution happens no matter what it just changes from the home owner to the factory. Never lose sight of that you cucks.
.t solar cell engineer

Yes but over the course of its lifetime, does that one energy bulb use more or less than 30kw of energy?
Never lose sight of that.

I'm a National Socialist actually
Frankly, I doubt niggers and faggots care about the environment at all. Niggers just don't care and faggots are too busy thinking about how to be disgusting in public 24/7 to contemplate the environment.
As for leftycucks, I'm not so sure. It's more of a virtue signal than something they actually care about.

Stop trying to kill us, AOC.

Why can't you just make your sputtering cuckservative objection to solar pv without sullying your honor by lying about your credentials? Very kikelike.

Solar pv is pretty gay compared to solar thermal, but solar pv will inevitably approach the efficiency of plantlife as it matures.

Anyway this whole thread is kiked and I don't know who is jewwing who.

butt what about muh fartz?

The problem isn't burning natural gas, it's all the shit thats released into the air when you mine it. And accidents happen…
We need modern nuclear plants.

They have been able to generate energy and reclaim the wastes for years. They CHOOSE NOT TO DO IT because it cuts into the shekels.

And it is a very easy feat to accomplish. Read up on rocket mass heaters and how they expel water vapor because they completely combust everything before the smoke it let out.

Fucking vegans and their gassy diet destroying the planet.

Instead they could use it to grow algae to make bioethanol or biodiesel.

Use rocket stove to heat water for a steam engine.

t. literally who

You don't really seems to know how many ways there is to use energy.
So enjoy this video before making useless thread.


Oy vey but then how will we implement a global government to manage global warming?

I'll take zero point energy for two hundred

I miss Space Elevator…

Fuck yeah. This is a shot to the balls for climate alarmists (if they had any).

Funny thing is no-one on the establishment left will support this. "No goy, we have to spend trillions to upgrade all our energy infrastructure."

97% of climate models are kike-pushed fake news.

Get off my thread boomer nobody can understand you.

Well too bad, now you have the MAGA elevator, only goes 2 floors: 1st and 2nd

Wonder if burying mass graves can solve the carbon crisis. Not naming who should be in those holes.

Carbon Dioxide is not a bad thing. Plants need it, retard.

In spite of the zero CO2 emissions fear factor angle, a performance increase from 60% ,which is pretty much standard, to 80% is beyond fucking huge.
So fuck the CO2 angle if you can squeeze a third more power out of the plant when in the past anything in 1-2% was a big news, I want to see it for this alone IF IT IS INDEED TRUE
