Heavy investment into research and development of clean coal technologies is occurring around the globe. However, surveys of public attitudes suggest most of the general public are unaware of any advanced coal technologies including carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS). This lack of .... read more

Four Australian coals were trialled in the Siemens 5 MWth pilot scale gasifier in Freiberg, Germany, in August 2007. A summary report of these trials was issued by the former CCSD, which gave an overview of the results of the trials and some preliminary links between existing, laboratory-scale .... read more

The objective of the research is to improve the efficiency of power station fine coal grinding circuits through the application of modelling and simulation technology. The overall project is expected to complete in 3.5 years as a PhD study program. ACARP funded the first two years (Project .... read more

The status of oxy-fuel technology for first-generation plant is indicated, this using an ASU for oxygen supply, standard furnace designs with externally recirculated flue gas, and limited thermal integration of the ASU and compression plant with the power plant. This includes the currently .... read more

In January, 2007 Connell Wagner completed a report which reviewed Hyper Coal, Ultra Clean Coal (UCC) and Rotating Kiln technology (Report 1). An extension to the earlier work was requested by ACARP to address recently published statements on the use of ultra clean coal for distributed .... read more

This report consists of a broad review of underground coal gasification, covering basic principles and techniques, but with an emphasis on environmental issues and a summary of the current status of worldwide activities. Underground coal gasification is a technology that was first envisaged in .... read more
