Sargas still hoping to promote carbon-capture in Malta using gas
Malta will be able to use gas and capture 85% of its carbon emissions with Sargas's carbon-capture technology, a representative of the Norwegian firm has told MaltaToday. On the eve of Labour's unveiling of its plan to reduce utility rates - now believed to include the participation of the private sector in electricity generation - Sargas's business development manager Martin Rödén told MaltaToday that Sargas and General Electric had teamed up to deliver clean gas-fired power plants with carbon capture-storage (CCS) technology in the USA. "This concept has now been launched in North America, and this means thatwould be able to use gas as fuel and capture 85% of the carbon dioxide, leading to a commercially viable, extremely clean baseload power, with an efficiency of 48% under ISO conditions," Rödén said.
