Description

Commercial-scale CCS for the Dry Fork Station power plant, in the Powder River Basin, in Wyoming, with saline storage sites capable of storing 50 million tonnes of CO2.

Basin Electric’s Dry Fork Station has been the site of Wyoming Integrated Test Center since 2018. In 2023, Membrane Technology and Research, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, and Japan Carbon Frontier Organization broke ground on their membrane carbon capture technology project that is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s large-scale pilot carbon capture program.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Japan Carbon Frontier Organization will be launching onsite activities for their solid sorbent capture technology, a project commissioned by the Japanese government.

The projects join the Integrated Test Center’s project portfolio, which represents over $100 million in carbon capture and carbon utilization technology deployment, and will serve as a crucial step towards advancing these technologies to commercialization.

In January 2024, Membrane Technology and Research received $8 million from the Wyoming Energy Authority to advance the pilot project to the final pre-commercial stage of development.
