Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology has long been considered a necessary part of the energy mix if we are to reduce carbon emissions enough to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. But it has so far proven to be financially infeasible without a set price on carbon, with recent efforts failing to get off the ground. Enter a new venture: NET Power. Instead of burning fossil fuels and capturing the carbon dioxide as a separate process after the fact, NET Power has designed an innovative power generation process that uses carbon dioxide to turn turbines, generating low-cost electricity while virtually eliminating all air emissions. ‘Off the Charts’ host Jeff McMahon sat down with NET Power CEO Bill Brown.
