Alstom and TransAlta Launch Project Pioneer Alstom and Canadian power company TransAlta —along with their partners in the governments of Canada and Alberta, and Capital Power, an independent power producer— have announced the creation of a partnership to construct a large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) demonstration facility at one of TransAlta’s coal-fired […]

Emissions Driving ICL Technology

Emissions Driving ICL Technology Driven by electricity rather than gas ICL technology saves energy and avoids associated CO2 emissions. Using a typical 8 MW ICL rather than a comparably sized gas turbine-driven compressor can reduce CO2 emissions by 60% or more. Introduced in 2007, integrated compressor  line (ICL) technology from GE Oil & Gas is […]
