Summit Power Group forms carbon capture unit

Seattle, September 20, 2011 — The Summit Power Group, a developer of low-carbon electric power projects, formed a new business unit within the company, called Summit Carbon Capture.

The company has hired Sasha Mackler as vice president of the new carbon capture and sequestration enterprise.

Summit is developing several CCS projects, most notably the Texas Clean Energy Project, a gasification facility with 90 percent carbon capture that will produce electric power and fertilizer, as well as captured carbon dioxide.

TCEP is a showcase project of the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Coal Power Initiative, which made a $450 million award to TCEP in 2010. The millions of tons of carbon dioxide captured from TCEP will be injected into depleted oil fields to enhance oil production and will be geologically sequestered from the atmosphere.

In his new role, Mackler will help manage commercial and policy aspects of the company's carbon-capture initiatives. He will focus on carbon-capture power projects and emerging technologies, as well as business opportunities for climate-friendly commercial uses of captured carbon such as enhanced oil production.
