GE, Northern Lights Partner to Explore Ccs Opportunities

GE Vernova’s Gas Power business and Northern Lights will cooperate to explore end-to-end carbon capture and storage (CCS) opportunities involving plants powered by GE gas turbines.

According to a signed MOU, both companies will develop technical and logistical solutions to capture, transport, and store carbon dioxide crucial to the development of an effective CCS supply chain.

Carbon capture technology could be a viable option for fossil-fired power plants to reduce their emissions. But while industry groups say the technology is crucial to America’s overall decarbonization efforts, opponents note that it’s costly and far from scale.

In 2022, GE’s front-end engineering design (FEED) study “Retrofittable Advanced Combined Cycle Integration for Flexible Decarbonized Generation” received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management to develop a detailed plan for integrating carbon capture technologies with a combined cycle plant to capture approximately 95 percent of carbon dioxide emissions. The goal for commercial deployment would be 2030.

In March 2023, GE also announced a collaboration with Svante to develop and evaluate innovative solid sorbent technologies for carbon capture from natural gas power generation.

Northern Lights is a Norwegian company developing infrastructure for cross-border CO2 transport and storage in Europe
