The demonstration project aims to deliver a cost-effective solution to carbon capture that FuelCell Energy said is expensive and consume significant amounts of energy.
The solution, using hydrogen fuel cells, is able to capture carbon from power plants or boiler flue gasses while producing clean electric power.
In doing so, this reduces the overall cost of the carbon capture upkeep.
According to the company, FuelCell Energy offers the only known platform that can capture carbon dioxide from an external source while simultaneously producing power.
Jason Few, CEO and President of FuelCell Energy, said, “To demonstrate the power of our carbonate fuel cell technology, and for the project to receive this funding from CRIN, is an honour.
“We are confident that the pilot will deliver the significant environmental benefits that the Canadian government is looking for, while helping to decarbonise its oil and gas industry and increase its competitiveness in the global market.”
