This power plant produces energy without emissions. Here’s why that’s a big deal

In 2016, we caught wind of a natural gas power plant being constructed in Texas that claimed it would produce energy without emissions. It promised to capture its own carbon dioxide emissions, not in a separate, expensive, power-intensive process like conventional carbon-capture facilities, but as part of the combustion cycle. Fast forward to 2018 and construction on this power plant is done. And guess what? The plant works—producing power with natural gas and zero emissions. This is a very big deal as more zero-carbon power plants would be an excellent complement to renewable energy and a cleaner path for countries that plan to continue using fossil fuels.
