Petra Nova Carbon Capture

Petra Nova Carbon Capture, operational since January 2017, is the world's largest post-combustion CO2 capture system presently in operation. Production unit 8 of the W. A. Parish power plant near Houston, Texas, was retrofitted with a 1.4 Mtpa post-combustion CO2 capture facility. The captured CO2 is transported via pipeline to an oil field near Houston for enhanced oil recovery.
