Experimental clean coal method claims 99.5% capture of CO2


Like it or not, coal will be a major source of energy for decades to come. So, let’s make it as clean as possible. Researchers have develop a new method, no doubt more expensive than traditional coal burning but still, which captures 99.5% of CO2 emissions.

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.

This does not sound like greenwash. Let’s hope it happens at grid scale.
