With the recent emphasis by DOE on Carbon Capture, Use and Sequestration, DFC based carbon capture plants could provide a compelling solution for applications such as Enhanced Oil Recovery where both power and carbon dioxide command premium prices.
DFC power plants excel at solving energy, environmental and business problems by providing ultra clean, efficient and reliable distributed power generation solutions. Direct FuelCells combine a fuel such as natural gas or renewable biogas with oxygen from the ambient air to efficiently produce ultra-clean electricity and usable high quality heat through an electrochemical process. DFC power plants emit virtually no pollutants due to the absence of combustion.
