Allam Cycle

A process for converting fossil fuels into mechanical power, while capturing all the generated carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. In the Allam cycle, natural gas is used as fuel along with pure oxygen, instead of air, thereby eliminating emissions of nitrogen oxides. While a portion of emitted CO2 is recirculated in the system, the excess CO2 is extracted for other industrial uses. This cycle results in high-efficiency power generation that inherently produces a pipeline-quality CO2 byproduct at no additional effect to the system’s performance.
