According to this article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, American Electric Power will announce today its intention...
to table plans to build a full-scale carbon-capture plant at Mountaineer, a 31-year-old coal-fired plant in West Virginia, where the company has successfully captured and buried carbon dioxide in a small pilot program for two years.
The stated reason: uncertainty that regulators would allow it to recover the costs involved in building full-scale unit to capture carbon dioxide before it goes out the stack.
I love the Ohio River. I enjoy reading about the river, smelling the river, photographing the river, listening to its sounds ... and we can share them here.
