  • Natural gas is cleaner than coal

    Over its full cycle of production, distribution, and use, natural gas emits just over half as many greenhouse gas emissions as coal does for equivalent energy output, according to a new study from the Worldwatch Institute (www.worldwatch.org) and the Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors. The analysis clarifies the role of methane releases in the calculation of comparative emissions between the ...

  • Coal & gas power plants - efficiency & cost

    Which of today's fossil fuel-fired power plants have highest efficiencies and lowest emissions? And how much do they cost? These are some of the questions answered in IEA's recently released publication Fossil Fuel-Fired Power Generation - Case Studies of Recently Constructed Coal- and Gas-Fired Power Plants. But the authors' case studies covering nine selected facilities in Europe, Asia and ...

  • Hydro beats nuclear and coal, beats oil and gas

    Researchers in Italy and the UK have reviewed the economic, social and environmental impact of hydro, coal, oil, gas and nuclear power. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, but of these conventional electricity generation technologies, hydroelectric power appears to be the most sustainable and acceptable environmentally and economically. Nuclear and coal run a close second place but oil or ...

  • Wind energy installations outperform gas and coal in 2014

    Across the 28 Member States, the wind industry connected a total of 11,791 MW to the grid with coal and gas adding 3,305 MW and 2,338 MW respectively. Moreover, the coal and gas industries in Europe both retired more capacity than they commissioned in 2014. In comparison, wind energy capacity in Europe increased 3.8% year on year from 2013, with cumulative installations now standing at 128.8 GW ...

  • Kentucky Plant Emblematic Of Move from Coal to Gas

    In the shadow of Paradise Fossil Plant's aging smokestacks, where white steam and carbon dioxide rise into the sky, outdated coal-fired generators are being replaced with one that runs on natural gas. The change in Muhlenberg County, once the nation's top producer of coal, is emblematic of what's been happening across the U.S. as natural gas becomes cheaper and electric utilities try to meet ...

  • Clean coal is possible - EPA

    A U.S. Interagency Task Force on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has delivered a series of recommendations on overcoming the barriers to the widespread, cost-effective deployment of CCS within 10 years. The Task Force concluded that CCS can play an important role in domestic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions while preserving the option of using coal and other abundant domestic fossil ...

  • The end of coal – Perhaps Not

    Concerns over greenhouse gas emissions have prompted governments across North America to pull the plug on new coal fired energy plants and to close down aging facilities. The days of coal, at least in North America, may be numbered. But breakthroughs in coal burning and carbon sequestration technologies raise the question is this really the end of coal or a new beginning for ‘clean’ ...

  • The search for clean coal

    Many countries and companies are pursuing with vigour the concept of ‘clean coal’, where toxic emissions of are reduced by over 90% and sulphur and greenhouse gas emissions are rendered virtually non-existent. Research is underway in Europe, North America and Asia on how to make use of the world’s most abundant fossil fuel in ways that are environmentally and socially more ...

  • Clean Coal Is Available Now

    Balancing energy costs with environmental goals is becoming increasingly difficult, but there are a number of promising opportunities which will make the achievement of this balance possible. These opportunities are analyzed by the McIlvaine Company in its Power Plant Air Quality Decisions service. The reality is that 50 percent of U.S. power is being produced in coal-fired plants. These ...

  • Coal is no longer on front burner

    America's headlong rush to tap its enormous coal reserves for electricity has slowed abruptly, with more than 50 proposed coal-fired power plants in 20 states canceled or delayed in 2007 because of concerns about climate change, construction costs and transportation problems. Coal, touted as cheap and plentiful, has been a cornerstone of President Bush's plans to meet America's energy needs with ...

  • Cleaning up clean coal

    Perhaps the only point that advocates for and against ’clean coal’ might agree on is the fact that we have lots of coal remaining and its continued use likely will be a significant part of our fossil fuel future. Whether it should be the fuel of choice is another matter. The coal industry - acutely aware of growing public concern over greenhouse gas emissions and other health-related issues ...

  • The alternative to coal in South Africa

    With a desperate need for dispatchable generation, South Africa should be readily embracing CSP as a low-carbon, sustainable, base load energy alternative. So why do its energy authorities remain unconvinced? This question has formed the subject of Part 2 of the CSP Today South Africa Guide. Forget green energy: while most nations are concerned about carbon reduction, South Africa seems more ...

  • Coal Bed Methane Gas Market by Technology, Application to 2011 – 2021

    Coal bed methane (CBM) is an unconventional natural gas found adsorbed in coal seams. It is primarily extracted from bituminous and sub-bituminous coals. The gas is stored in the coal matrix through adsorption. Coal seam methane can be extracted before, during, or after coal mining operations take place; based on which it can be classified as CBM, ...
