NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than 90 percent of carbon dioxide has been captured from a small emissions slipstream at a Wisconsin coal-burning power plant in a pilot project, testers said on Thursday.

We Energies, a subsidiary of Wisconsin Energy Corp, and French multinational Alstom SA said they and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) started testing Alstom's chilled ammonia process on a 1.7-megawatt slipstream at We Energies' 1,208 MW Pleasant Prairie plant in early 2008. The test will end later this year. "One of the biggest challenges facing our industry is the development of cost effective technology that will allow us to capture carbon from the operation of power plants around the world," We Energies CEO Gale Klappa said in a release.
