Clean coal technologies
Anticipated growth of the global economy, especially the development of Asian countries, indicates that the demand for electricity will be increasing. In the foreseeable future hard coal will remain a substantial source of energy. However, coal as an energy source has one disadvantage. The burning of coal leads to increased emissions of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, which is a serious problem in the era of global warming. This highlights the importance of developing coal technologies which do not cause damage to the environment.
