DOE Funds Next Generation Coal Power Technology
From Smart Planet
Rumors of coal’s demise might be greatly exaggerated. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is funding new “clean coal” technologies that would retrofit existing power plants to be in compliance with pollution rules.
On Friday, ThermoEnergy announced that Unity Power Alliance (UPA) has been selected for a DOE grant. UPA is joint venture with ITEA S.p.a, a European company that specializes in a flameless oxy-combustion process that burns coal under high pressure in highly purified oxygen.
