Clean Coal technology - Definition, glossary, details

When technologies like CCS, gasification are applied to coal fired power plants, the emission of greenhouse gases in reduced significantly. It is the new generation of energy process that reduces air emissions and other pollutants from coal-burning power plants. This technology is termed as “clean coal technology”.
