The effort at the Barry Electric Generating Station began in full at the end of last month.</p><p>The plant is big, and the carbon-capture apparatus is small, so only about one percent of the flue gas is actually being captured. But the fact that the carbon dioxide is also being transported about 12 miles through a pipeline and sequestered deep in the earth is an important step for the technology.</p> Mon, 03 Sep 2012 20:30:00 +0000 Erica Peterson 1527 at http://wfpl.org Alabama Plant Begins Capturing, Sequestering Carbon Dioxide
