DOE to award up to $100M for future coal plants in Coal FIRST initiative

Green Car Congress

The US Department of Energy (DOE) intends to provide up to $100 million in awards ( DE-FOA-0002116 ) for the Coal FIRST (Flexible, Innovative, Resilient, Small, and Transformative) initiative (announced in November 2018), which aims to develop coal plants of the future that will provide secure, stable, reliable power with near-zero emissions. In 2017, coal was the second-largest energy source for electricity generation in the United States.

New catalyst opens door to CO2 capture in coal-to-liquids process

Green Car Congress

World energy consumption projections expect coal to stay one of the world’s main energy sources in the coming decades, and a growing share of it will be used in CT—the conversion of coal to liquid fuels (CTL). The conversion of coal to liquid fuels is especially relevant in coal-rich countries that have to import oil for their supply of liquid fuels—such as China. By 2020, CTL is expected to account for 15% of the coal use in China.
