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 that Malta would 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.
