Green coal power generation

The Coal 21 Conference 2007, Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal-based electricity generation will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia, September 18-19, 2007.

COAL21 is Australia’s unique collaborative program aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Participants in COAL21 include federal and state government agencies, the coal and power generation industries, related unions and key research organisations. The COAL21 National Action Plan was released in March 2004. The plan identifies key technologies with the potential to slash GHG emissions associated with coal-based electricity generation. It also outlines the actions that need to be taken to develop and deploy those technologies in Australia as part of the overall national response to climate change.

The COAL21 Conference 2007 will attract the foremost speakers and experts in the field of low emissions technologies. Delegates will include a who’s who of industry, science, technology and policy practitioners.
