International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference Draws International Experts to UW

June 18, 2010 — On June 23 and 24, Laramie, Wyo., will be the center of attention for advanced coal technologies.

The second International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference will draw together policy makers, researchers, technology developers and a host of experts to share best practices and encourage cooperation among coal-producing nations.

"We're pleased with the response to the conference," says Mark Northam, director of the UW School of Energy Resources. "We see this as an opportunity to find common areas for research collaboration and investment to advance the low-emission use of coal. This is a world energy issue and of great importance to the Wyoming economy."

The conference, co-sponsored by the University of Wyoming and the University of Queensland, will feature keynote addresses by Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal and the Hon. Peter Beattie, trade commissioner for Queensland, Australia, in the United States and former premier of Queensland. Zhenghing Zhao, vice governor of Shaanxi Province, China, has also been invited to speak.

The conference features a series of invited talks from key research groups and companies at the forefront of developing advanced coal technologies in areas such as coal gasification and combustion, coal bed methane, carbon management and fuels and chemicals derived from coal.
