23–24 June 2010 International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference
Laramie, Wyoming, USA
A two-day conference in the heart of the Rocky Mountain West’s coal country brings together policy makers, technology developers and industry leaders from the largest coal-producing regions in the world. Fossil fuels, including coal, are the prime source of the world’s energy and are the focus of the world’s environmental concern. Because international economies depend on energy produced from coal, finding environmentally sound ways to generate energy with advanced coal technologies is critical. Sponsored by the University of Wyoming and The University of Queensland, Australia, the conference will allow participants to share best practices and technology advances, and it will encourage cooperation among nations.
- Presentations from the U.S. Department of Energy and representatives from coal-producing regions around the world, including Wyoming and Queensland, Australia
- Invited talks from key research groups and companies at the forefront of developing advanced coal technologies from the United States and other nations in areas such as coal gasification and combustion, coal bed methane, carbon management and fuels and chemicals derived from coal
- Contributing talks and posters from prominent researchers and technology experts
