The Project

Decarbonizing Industry. Creating Jobs.

One of the first projects of its kind in the world, Broadwing would represent more than a half-billion-dollar investment into Central Illinois, building on the existing carbon storage facility at Decatur. 8 Rivers Capital, through its Zero Degrees development business, and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) have agreed in principle to locate the Broadwing facility adjacent to ADM’s processing complex in Decatur

It will generate 280 MW of clean power available 24/7 while capturing its CO2 for sequestration.

The design is based on the NET Power system, which combusts fuel with oxygen, as opposed to air, and uses supercritical carbon dioxide as a working fluid to drive a turbine instead of steam.

This eliminates all emissions, including air pollution and CO2, and inherently produces pipeline-quality CO2 that can be sequestered, all while operating at competitive cost and efficiency to traditional gas power plants.

Allam-Fetvedt Cycle

280 MW of power with zero emissions is made possible by the groundbreaking Allam-Fetvedt Cycle, invented by 8 Rivers and advanced by NET Power.

100% Clean Energy

Broadwing accelerates the path to meeting the clean energy goals of Illinois and of the entire country.

Investment and Jobs

Broadwing would involve more than a half-billion-dollar investment into Central Illinois to build the plant, creating over 1,000 direct and indirect jobs during peak construction.

Power Without Pollution

It has the potential to displace over 1 million tons of CO2 per year emitted from existing coal and gas plants, while emitting no air pollutants.

This technology was proven by NET Power and represents a game-changing advance in the search for solutions to climate change, one that makes today’s fossil fuel power plant’s economically and environmentally obsolete.

The proposed Broadwing Clean Energy Complex would be adjacent to ADM’s processing facility and would utilize the existing carbon storage site.

Capturing Carbon

Developed by Rodney Allam and Jeremy Fetvedt, NET Power’s semi-closed loop technology leverages oxy-combustion to produce emissions-free power. 

The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle burns natural gas with pure oxygen. The resulting CO2 is recycled through the combustor, turbine, heat exchanger, and compressor, creating lower-cost power with zero emissions.
