Industry executives believe the US, Australia and China will be leading clean coal technology in five years‘ time. China’s appetite for energy is creating both unpleasant realities and unexpected opportunities.

The central government has put unprecedented emphasis on clean coal technologies, aggressively pursuing coal gasification as a way to burn coal more cleanly, in order to reduce 40%-45% CO2 emissions by 2020. Active research and deployment of CBM, CTL, Synfuel, IGCC and CCS have already got afoot in China, including Huaneng Group’s CCS pilot projects, PetroChina’s ambitious CBM plan, Shenhua, Yankuang and Lu’an’s CTL Projects .

Supported by World CTL Association, Carbon Capture & Storage Association, Association of Electricity Producers and Underground Coal Gasification Partnership, World Clean Coal Week China Focus 2010 will be held from 29th November to 3rd December in Beijing, China.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Roadmap to Active Deployment of Cleaner Coal Technologies’. The conference covers a wide spectrum of topics on gasification, coal-to-liquid CTL), synfuel, power generation and environmental issues.
