FuelCell Energy and Exxon Mobil Select Alabama Power's Power Plant to Pilot Carbon Capture Technology

FuelCell Energy and Exxon Mobil announced that they have selected a Southern Company’s power plant in Alabama to test their fuel cell carbon capture technology. A 2.7 gigawatt mixed-use coal and gas-fired power plant the James M. Barry Electric Generating Station, operated by Southern Company subsidiary Alabama Power, will host pilot plant tests of the technology. The technology, which is being developed by FuelCell Energy and Exxon Mobil, uses carbonate fuel cells to concentrate and capture carbon dioxide streams from power plants. In May 2016, FuelCell Energy and Exxon Mobil entered into an agreement to conduct tests to demonstrate carbon capture from natural gas-fired power generation. To concentrate and capture a portion of the carbon dioxide emissions from the power plant, the pilot tests will use FuelCell Energy’s commercial DFC3000 carbonate fuel cell power system. Flue gas will combine with natural gas in the fuel cells’ air intake system after it is directed into the system from power generation. The fuel cells concentrate and capture carbon dioxide, which will be compressed and cooled utilizing standard chilling equipment. The results from the pilot tests are expected to help in testing the technology at a larger scale.
