Breaking ground for a groundbreaker: the first Allam Cycle power plant

On 9 March, NET Power – a collaboration between Exelon Generation, CB&I, and 8 Rivers Capital – announced it had broken ground on a first-of-a-kind power plant that will demonstrate the Allam Cycle. This novel concept (described by its inventor, Rodney Allam, in Modern Power Systems, May 2013 issue) employs oxyfuel combustion of gaseous fuel and supercritical high pressure carbon dioxide as the working fluid to drive a turbine, with the inherent elimination of all atmospheric emissions without requiring expensive, efficiency-reducing “add-on” carbon capture equipment.
