GE announces CCS deal

The plant, sited near Bakersfield in Kern County, California, will use the captured carbon emissions for enhanced oil recovery and sequestration in an adjacent oil field. The integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) technology proposed for the plant would convert petroleum coke, coal or a combination of each into a synthesis gas (syngas). Chemical scrubbers would filter out pollutants and separate carbon dioxide, leaving a hydrogen-rich fuel to power the gas turbine combined-cycle system
