GE Gas Power and the Norwegian company Northern Lights JV DA have entered into a memorandum of understanding to develop end-to-end carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions, including carbon dioxide capture, transportation, and storage for power plants that use GE gas turbines.
Both companies will develop technical and logistical solutions to capture, transport, and store carbon dioxide. GE scientists say that carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies will play a crucial role in reducing carbon emissions in the power generation sector, and the company has developed relationships with providers and customers to advance innovation including agreements with Linde, Technip, NetZero Teesside, and Southern Company.
In 2022, GE’s front-end engineering design study “Retrofittable Advanced Combined Cycle Integration for Flexible Decarbonized Generation” received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a detailed plan for integrating carbon capture technologies with a natural gas-combined cycle plant to capture approximately 95% of carbon dioxide emissions. The goal is to deploy the technology commercially by 2030.
In March 2023, GE announced a collaboration with Svante to develop and evaluate innovative solid sorbent technologies for carbon capture from natural gas power generation. GE also successfully tested its first Direct Air Capture prototype unit at its Climate Action@GE Lab in Niskayuna, N.Y.
