FuelCell Energy Takes Step Toward Commercializing Carbon Capture Technology with ExxonMobil

FuelCell Energy reports that ExxonMobil has ordered its long-lead fuel cell stack module equipment for carbon capture, utilization, and storage.

The C3 Take
  • FuelCell Energy creates long-lead fuel cell stack module equipment for point source carbon capture.
  • The modules captures CO2 at the source and directs the emissions to a fuel cell where it undergoes a reaction to produce power.
  • ExxonMobil has yet to make a final investment decision, but its ordering of FuelCell’s technology represents an important step in developing a demonstration project for this solution.

“The modules will use carbonate fuel cells to efficiently capture and concentrate carbon dioxide streams. Combustion exhaust from an external source, like a flue stream, will be directed to the fuel cell, which electrochemically reacts fuel and air to produce power, while capturing and concentrating carbon dioxide for utilization or permanent storage. The modular design enables the technology to be deployed at a wide range of locations, operate at high efficiency, and advance business goals at hard-to-decarbonize industrial and commercial applications.”
