Laboratories

Peabody Energy Advanced Coal Technology Laboratory

Located on the first floor of the EIC, the Peabody Energy Advanced Coal Technology Laboratory will be used primarily to analyze and research coal conversion technologies. The conversion of low-value fossil resources into higher-value products — or advanced conversion — is a key component of SER’s strategic plan. This lab will support research in the conversion of natural gas and coal into various manufactured products and liquid fuels.

For example, two projects soon to be active in this lab include studying the behavior of coal inside the reactor for better understanding and development of reactors and system designs for coal conversion and the conversion of synthesis gas from coal to ethylene glycol, with a focus on commercializing processes.
