The 5th International Advanced Coal Technologies Conference will bring together an international array of leading energy experts from government, industry, academic, and research sectors to discuss and share recent advancements in the development and deployment of low-emissions coal-based power and carbon emission mitigation technologies. The 2015 conference hosted by the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources, will be held October 6th and 7th at Jackson Hole.
The first international conference bringing together U.S., Chinese, and Australian stakeholders took place in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in 2008. The subsequent two conferences were held in Laramie. This is the first time the conference has been held in Wyoming since 2010.
The goal of the conference is to advance, through collaboration with global partners in policy, education, and research, the environmental and economic use of coal to meet world energy sustainability and security; and to explore new opportunities for coal through carbon engineering and CO2 utilization and storage.
