  • Present status and future prospect of clean coal technology in China

    Coal consumption accounts for about two thirds of the primary energy consumption in China. High economic growth has brought about a rapid increase of coal consumption. Low-efficiency combustion of a large amount of coal caused coal-smoke related air pollution. The Chinese government put forward plans to develop clean coal technology in the early 1990s, and has listed it as one of the emphases for ...

  • The role of coal technologies to support responsible economic growth

    The Asian Pacific region is home to the fastest-growing economies in the world. These economies are expected to double gross domestic product (GDP) in the next decade, and coal will play a major role as the primary energy source for electric power. The tremendous projected financial burden associated with the installation of new, coal-fired electric power facilities to fuel this unprecedented ...

  • Performance of externally fired combined cycle (EFCC)

    The externally fired combined cycle (EFCC) which utilises coal as the primary fuel through a gas turbine cycle is a clean coal technology. Natural gas is used as the supplementary fuel, but the ultimate goal of the EFCC concept is a coal only option. In this study, the performance of the EFCC plant is evaluated based on the first and the second laws of thermodynamics, considering various levels ...

  • Laboratory scale tests of coal-based hydrogen production with CO2 capture in the aspect of clean coal technologies

    In the light of continuously increasing oil prices as well as stronger environmental regulations, an important issue becomes finding an alternative to fossil fuels. Scientists agree that hydrogen seems to be an ideal, price-competitive and environment-friendly future energy carrier. One of the most effective methods of hydrogen production is the process of steam gasification of coal to ...

  • Upcoming EU electricity and gas directives should be changed to support EU`s new energy and climate policies

    It is important that the coming electricity and gas market directives ensures that renewable energy is given priority in the electricity and gas networks. This is both important when the energy is sold from local producers to the network and when the network is used for transport of energy from a renewable energy production unit to its owners. It applies to both electricity and gas networks, and ...
