Inside the plans for the UK’s ‘first net-zero power plant’

Joseph Flaig of The Institution of Mechanical Engineers reports on the UK’s first net-zero power plant.

The C3 Take
  • Whitetail Clean Energy will be the UK’s first net-zero power plant thanks to the help of American companies 8 Rivers and NET Power.
  • The UK power plant will be retrofitted with NET Power’s closed loop system that captures over 97% of emissions from the power plant.
  • Whitetail Clean Energy will capture more than 725,000 tons of CO2 per year and store it under the North Sea.

“The power station is a joint venture between Sembcorp and 8 Rivers Capital, which invented the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle. The process, which has so far only been demonstrated at Net Power’s test facility in La Porte, Texas, burns 4% natural gas and 4% oxygen in a combustor alongside CO2. The combustion process results in 925ºC, 300bar CO2, which is fed through a turboexpander to generate power.”
