  • Underground Coal Gasification Poised to Grow Fivefold, Zeus Report Finds

    The potential energy supply from underground coal gasification (UCG) is so vast that the technology could rival the shale gas revolution, a Zeus Development Corp. study finds. Because UCG developers can target coals that are deep, of low grade and in seams too thin for economical mining, the technology could increase recoverable reserves threefold, a Lawrence Livermore National Lab report found ...

  • 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’ ...

  • Bush administration pulls the plug on cleaner coal project

    The best way to cut down on the greenhouse gases produced by power generation is to reduce the nation's appetite for electricity. Renewable energy sources like wind power and biomass have a helpful role to play. Yet, dependable base sources will remain necessary, and coal-fired plants will probably be part of the mix for a long time. Minimizing the impact of such plants is vital. That is why it ...


  • Clean coal technologies markets and trends worldwide

    Coal is expected to continue to be a dominant fuel in power generation due to its low cost and abundance. Nearly 7 billion tonnes of coal were produced globally in 2010, and over 40% of global electricity was coal powered. On a levelized cost of production basis, the global market value of coal-fired electricity exceeded $400 billion. Nonetheless, conventional coal power generation is ...
