Duke Energy, Huaneng extend carbon capture collaboration

Duke Energy Corporation and state-owned China Huaneng Group for the second time agreed to work jointly on carbon capture and sequestration technology development.

In a three-year partnership, the two companies will conduct research in advanced coal and carbon capture and sequestration technologies.

In particular, an engineering study will be conducted to determine if Huaneng's carbon capture technology can be used at Duke Energy's Gibson Station in Indiana.

The Gibson Station, Duke Energy's largest power plant, has five operating units that generate a combined capacity of 3,145 megawatts.

The new agreement is an expansion of a previous memorandum of understanding between the two in 2009. Since then, Huaneng has reportedly developed a facility that captured 120,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually from their 1,320-MW coal-fired Shidongkou power station in China.

The current study will focus on the Gibson plant's Unit 3 to see whether the technology in Shidongkou can be applied there, without any modifications to the existing infrastructure.

Funding for the project will be provided by the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center established in 2009 for such collaborations. The center focuses on advanced energy technologies and has a $100 million budget for the next five years from the business sector in the U.S. as well as the governments of the United States and China.

Aside from CCS technologies with Huaneng, one of China's five largest energy conglomerates, Duke is collaborating with Chinese companies BYD for energy storage and transportation technologies and the EEN Group to develop an "eco city" in Langfang near Beijing. – EcoSeed Staff
