Center for Carbon Capture and Conversion – which houses the Carbon Engineering Program
at UW, focuses on supporting existing energy and fuel markets and finding novel uses
for Wyoming coal. The center is investigating new high-volume uses for coal, converting
coal into valuable engineered and chemical products, exploring new opportunities in
an evolving carbon market.
At the project working level, the CCCC partners with faculty and researchers located
in other University of Wyoming colleges, bringing together interdisciplinary teams
to devlop environmentally friendly solutions to support the future of Wyoming coal
and economic development of the state.
The Carbon Engineering Initiative (CEI) focuses on creating new markets for Wyoming
coal by growing the demand for coal as a feedstock that can be converted into chemical
and high-performance engineered products.
It primarily seeks to develop original patentable intellectual property to process
and make value added, novel products that can be deployed as standalone solutions
or used to augment technology developed by others.
The CCCC seeks to create a sustainable demand for coal as an energy fuel by developing
and supporting technologies that permit clean, high efficiency combustion with integrated
CO2 capture that are technically and economically viable.
The Center is working with the Wyoming oil and gas industry to host a pre-commercial
demonstration of flameless pressurized oxy-fuel (FPO) combustion, incorporating CO2
The CCCC seeks to improve the efficient and effective clean burning characteristics
of Wyoming Powder River Basin (PRB) coal, and is collaborating with technology companies
to bring their solutions to the state.
