Southern Company's leadership in carbon capture research and development continued last month with the addition of two new members to the International Test Center Network (ITCN), a leading global carbon capture coalition chaired and operated by the National Carbon Capture Center.
POWER-GEN International has named Southern Company's Roxann A. Laird its 2016 Woman of the Year. Laird is director of the National Carbon Capture Center, a U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored project managed and operated by Southern Company, and also directs the company's reduced carbon, renewable and distributed energy research and development activities. The award was announced during a ceremony today in Orlando, Florida.
Two international companies recently marked the completion of an important pilot project at the National Carbon Capture Center, located at Alabama Power’s Plant Gaston in Wilsonville. Researchers say it may pave the way for the further advancement of carbon capture during coal-fired power generation.
