Fluor carried out engineering, procurement, and construction for this CO2 recovery plant for Northeast Associates at its 320MWe gas-fired plant in Bellingham, Massachusetts. The facility used Fluor's proprietary process, Econamine FG PlusSM, to capture CO2 from flue gases, at a recovery rate of 85-95 %. Each of the plant’s two combustion turbines produced low-pressure steam for use in the adjacent CO2 recovery plant. The captured gas was suitable for sale to the food industry.
The capture plant ran from 1991 to 2005, but was closed due to the increase in natural gas prices.
