Powering Innovation – Processing & Generation

New technologies help capture carbon dioxide from power plants and factories, reducing CO2 emissions and potentially making natural gas-fueled electricity generation even cleaner.

On-site cogeneration plants that recover a refinery’s waste heat and use it to power other processes is one example of company investments to reduce facility energy consumption and help improve air quality.

Natural gas to generate power, combined heat and power, microturbines and natural gas direct carbon fuel cells are examples of innovation bringing the benefits of natural gas to more homes and businesses.

Growing use of natural gas as a fuel for electricity generation has helped lower emissions of carbon dioxide from the power sector to their lowest point in nearly three decades.

Fuel cells provide critical energy backup for many large facilities, and they can provide primary energy for remote locations. Fuel cell technology generates electricity from hydrogen while emitting nothing but water.
