eBook: FutureGen: A Brief History and Issues for Congress

BY Folger, P.

Congressional Research Service author, Peter Folger, a specialist in energy and natural resources policy, provides an update on FutureGen. Since its inception in 2003, FutureGen has undergone changes in scope and design. The project has been restructured as FutureGen 2.0: a coal-fired power plant that would integrate oxy-combustion technology to capture CO2. FutureGen 2.0 is the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) most comprehensive CCS demonstration project, combining all three aspects of CCS technology: capturing and separating CO2 from other gases, compressing and transporting CO2 to the sequestration site, and injecting CO2 in geologic formations for permanent storage.
