FutureGen-project back on track

Publish date: September 25, 2005

The 10 year one billion USD project to build a full-scale coal-fired zero emission power plant is one step closer to realisation.

Coal utilities have recently formed a coalition to match the federal funding. This will put the important FutureGen project back on track. If successful, this program will pave the way for a responsible way to utilise vast coal deposits in USA. It may lead to reduced dependency of oil imports and perhaps also make zero-emission technologies available to countries such as India, China and Australia.
