GE Gas Power, Southern Company, Linde, BASF and Kiewit are to work together on a study for a carbon capture facility at Alabama Power’s natural gas combined cycle James M. Barry Electric Generating Plant. (Alabama Power is a subsidiary of Southern Company.)

GE’s control technology would be combined with Linde’s Gen 2 carbon capture solution, which is based on BASF’s OASE blue technology (carbon capture and storage technology). The facility would be designed to capture 95% of the carbon dioxide from the flue gas. The study has already won US$5.7 million (€5 million) in funding from the US Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management.
