International Coal Technologies Conference Oct. 6-7

August 13, 2015

International energy experts will explore new opportunities for coal, through carbon engineering and carbon dioxide utilization and storage, at the fifth International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference Oct. 6-7 in Jackson.

The event at the Snow King Hotel is hosted by the University of Wyoming’s School of Energy Resources (SER), Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, and the University of Queensland, in conjunction with China’s Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Energy Resources and Chemical Engineering.

“We look forward to hearing from experts from government, industry, academic and research sectors about opportunities for the environmentally sound and economical use of coal to meet world energy sustainability and security needs,” SER Director Mark Northam says.

The first international conference -- bringing together U.S., Chinese and Australian officials -- took place in Brisbane, Australia, in 2008. Subsequent conferences have taken place in Laramie, Shaanxi Province and, again, in Brisbane.

Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead is among those scheduled to speak this year.

Sessions will include presentations on federal, state/provincial and local regulatory and policy actions affecting coal; the global industrial outlook; research and technology priorities; and opportunities and challenges for coal as a feedstock source.

Technical talks will include innovations for coal to generate power and meet Environmental Protection Agency standards; conversion of coal to chemicals and innovative carbon-based products; and managing the carbon cycle.
