The vision of the US-China CERC-ACTC is to advance the technologies needed to safely, effectively, and efficiently utilize coal resources, which includes capturing, storing, and utilizing the emissions from coal use.
The results will benefit both countries through:
- economic development
- reduced emissions
- improved energy efficiency
Key research in clean coal technologies is addressing new challenges associated with clean coal power generation and transformation; the development of low-cost capture technologies; and the development of geological sequestration practices.
