Microturbines to be tested for syngas, hydrogen operation

The US Department of Energy (DOE) will provide funding in the amount of $335,000 for one year to Argonne National Laboratory to conduct hydrogen and synthetic fuel (“syngas”) testing on Capstone’s C65 and C200 microturbines.

In October 2015, Capstone partnered with Argonne National Laboratory, a science and engineering research facility that is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC for the DOE’s Office of Science, for participation in the DOE’s Technologist in Residence (TIR) program. Since then, Capstone and Argonne have explored new focus areas to advance the adoption of low-emission, high-efficiency power solutions. The additional funding from the DOE will help to drive Capstone’s hydrogen and syngas fuel product offering to market and promote further research and development efforts.
