In Search of Clean Coal

http://www.pembina.org/pubs/doc.php?id=1345

In light of Ontario retreating from its plan to phase out coal, Pembina has updated its 1991 assessment of combustion technologies for electricity.

Is coal any cleaner?

Not according to the results of our recent analysis. Although there has been some advancement in coal technologies such as Integration Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC), none of the coal technologies are as favorable in terms of environmental performance as natural gas.

Although there are some opportunities to combine IGCC with carbon capture and storage technologies, this solution is unproven.
