We’re changing the world through the technology we cultivate.

The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle and NET Power

Affordable Energy now means zero-emissions.

8 Rivers has developed the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle, the only technology that will enable the world to meet its climate targets without paying more for electricity. The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle is a new way to generate low-cost power from carbon-based fuels without producing air emissions. It’s also the technology behind 8 Rivers portfolio company, NET Power, which is currently building the first Allam-Fetvedt Cycle power plant.
