Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program

The Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program was created to stimulate research and development in the area of low-emissions and advanced coal technologies.  Commercially successful deployment of these technologies is the ultimate goal of the program.  The objectives of the program are:

  • Enable and accelerate demonstration and early commercial deployment of technologies that have the potential to enhance and improve the use of sub-bituminous coal at high altitudes, specifically in Wyoming.
  • Generate and test new ideas for significant improvement and cost reductions in next-generation low-emissions and advanced coal technologies.
  • Support collaborative research and development in accomplishing the above objectives. 

As of July 1, 2012, the Clean Coal Task Force and the Clean Coal Technology Research Account was renamed the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) and the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Account, respectively. This change is in accordance with original Senate File 15/Senate Enrolled Act 3 enacted by the Sixty-first Legislature of the State of Wyoming in the 2012 budget session. It is intended to broaden the scope of the Clean Coal/Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force from coal conversion to other resource to value-added product conversion technologies.

Reporting

All projects funded through the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program are required to submit both a final executive summary report and a final technical report to the ACTTF via SER upon completion of their research.  Because final technical reports contain proprietary and confidential information, they are not available to the public.  Final executive summary reports can be found below:

Final Executive Summary Reports 

Clean Coal Technology Research Symposium

In addition to their written reporting requirements, all projects funded through the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program are required to present their work in a public forum.  Each year, SER hosts the Clean Coal Technology Research Symposium to provide a public forum for members of industry, academia, and the public to learn about research conducted through the program.  Presentations from past symposia are available below:

2011 Clean Coal Technology Research Symposium

2012 Clean Coal Technology Research Symposium
