Clean Energy Systems to Supply CO2 for Underground Tests

Article Type: Reprinted

Rancho Cordova-based Clean Energy Systems Inc. will supply carbon dioxide from its power plant near Bakersfield for a project testing underground storage of greenhouse gases.

The West Coast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership, a group of 70 organizations led by the California Energy Commission, will manage the $90.6 million project. The U.S. Department of Energy has allocated $65.6 million to help fund it.

Clean Energy Systems has a 5-megawatt power plant on the Kern County site and plans to build a 50-megawatt plant that will include previously demonstrated carbon-capturing technology. The project will inject 1 million tons of the compressed carbon dioxide into rock formations 7,000 feet underground over four years, beginning in 2011.

The company's power generators use rocket-engine technology to burn natural gas or other fuels in an oxygen-filled, high-pressure chamber. The company says the process has no emissions other than carbon dioxide and water.
