Coal industry competitors (natural gas industry) and good intentioned over the top self proclaimed environmentalist have had a devastating effect on Americas Coal Industry. For near 50 years coal industry has been blamed for everything from causing the extension of dinosaurs to climate change.
It’s about time for some good news for the coal Industry and here it is.
Researchers have discovered a stunning new process that takes the energy from coal without burning it and removes virtually all of the pollution. This process removes 99 percent of the pollution from coal. Coal burning power plants produced about 1/3 of the nation’s carbon dioxide according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
OSU’s Clean Coal Research Laboratory has discovered a way to heat coal, using iron-oxide pellets for an oxygen source and containing the reaction in a small, heated chamber from which pollutants cannot escape. The only waste product is therefore water and coal ash with no greenhouse gases. As an added benefit, the metal from the iron-oxide can be recycled.
This new process could really promote our energy independence. Not only can we use America’s natural resources such as coal, but we can keep our air clean and spur the economy with jobs.
