Upcoming 2015 International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference

  • October 6-7, 2015, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
  • Check back for registration and program information

Overview

The purpose of the International Advanced Coal Technologies Conferences (IACTC) are to advance the goals set forth by the U.S. - China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC) which was established in November 2009. The overarching goal of CERC is to (CERC, 2011):

Facilitate joint research, development, and commercialization of clean energy technologies between the United States and China … while building a foundation of knowledge, human capabilities, and relationships in mutually beneficial areas that will emphasize clean energy in both nations.

The U.S. – China Clean Energy Research Center maintains three focus areas for collaborative research and development.  Advanced coal technologies, including carbon capture, storage, and utilization is one of the three CERC focus areas.  The group appointed to lead the U.S. CERC efforts is the U.S. Advanced Coal Technology Consortia (CERC-ACTC), which is managed by Dr. Jerald Fletcher of West Virginia University.  The vision put forth by the CERC-ACTC is to “advance the coal technology needed to safely, effectively, and efficiently utilize coal resources including the ability to capture, store, and utilize emissions from coal use in both nations” (CERC, 2011).  Furthermore, CERC seeks to actively manage and protect intellectual property rights and any new discoveries that should arise from the collaborations.  To date, CERC-ACTC has experienced successes in the development of various advanced combustion technologies like chemical looping, oxy-combustion, catalytic gasification of coal, and co-conversion of coal with biomass.

The first international conference bringing together U.S., Chinese, and Australian stakeholders pursuant to the CERC effort took place in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in 2008.  The subsequent two conferences were held in Laramie, Wyoming, USA in 2010 and Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China in 2012. The fourth international conference will be held back in Brisbane.
