Inside NET Power: Gas Power Goes Supercritical 

A project to demonstrate a novel power cycle that promises to produce low-cost, reliable, and flexible power from natural gas—while generating no atmospheric emissions, and fully capturing carbon dioxide—is inching…


What Are Supercritical CO2 Power Cycles?

While conventional power plant cycles produce power from turbines using water or steam as the working fluid, supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) cycles use CO2 that is in a supercritical state—at a…


Game-Changing Coal Power Technologies

To be a relevant player in the future power mix, coal power efficiency and costs must improve, and technologies in the realm of research and development promise to do just…


Supercritical CO2 Brayton Power Cycle Pilot Plant Bolstered with $80M in Federal Funding

The Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will award up to $80 million to a 10-MWe pilot project that seeks to advance the development and commercialization of supercritical…


A Supercritical CO2–Cooled Small Modular Reactor

A small modular reactor (SMR) system that uses a supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) Brayton cycle instead of the steam Rankine cycle is under development at the Korea Advanced Institute of…
