A Solution to Saving Coal Power Plants? September 7, 2014

Construction is underway in Texas on the world’s largest project to capture carbon dioxide from an existing coal power plant. The $1 billion Petra Nova project, funded by NRG energy, JX Nippon and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), will extract carbon from a power unit and ship it to an old oil field 80 miles away to enhance production. Program Host Bill Loveless will interview Christopher Smith, DOE’s acting assistant secretary for fossil energy, on the project’s commercial viability, and whether it could offer a solution to upcoming U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules.
