“Clean Coal” In The Near Future? Technology Reaches New Milestone

“Clean Coal” In The Near Future? Technology Reaches New Milestone

A commercially viable way to burn coal while capturing the CO2 emissions is moving closer to reality. Researchers at the American Chemical Society (ACS) recently reported the achievement of a new milestone on the path to commercial use, a successful 200-hour test on a sub-pilot scale version of the technology while using two of the most highly polluting forms of coal. Image Credits: Mounds of Coal via Shutterstock The test was recently detailed in a study published in the ACS journal Energy & Fuels . While a clean and rapid break away from coal use within the next few years would be the ideal, it is very likely that coal will continue to be used in some capacity into the near future. So perhaps this technology has a place, potentially helping to reduce carbon emissions, and limit the speed and extent at which future climate change will occur. The technology works by separa...
