Under the terms of the contract, the firms will carry out an engineering study to determine the potential feasibility of applying Huaneng Group’s low-cost carbon capture process.

The carbon capture process will be used at unit 3 of Duke Energy’s Gibson Station in Indiana

Presently, there are no plans to make any modifications to the power plant at this stage of the study.

There are five units at Gibson with a combined capacity of 3,145MW.

Funding for the project will be provided by the US-China Clean Energy Research Center.
