Clean Coal A Reality – Has Professor Liang-Shih Fan cracked it?

Share

A team of researchers at Ohio State University in the US claim to have discovered a new method of taking the energy from coal without actually burning it. The new method – called coal-direct chemical looping – has been pioneered by Professor Liang-Shih Fan and his team at Ohio State University, and is claimed to essentially remove the danger from greenhouse gasses when using coal for energy. Whilst any other power plant that burns coal does so traditionally – by burning the coal to create steam to turn turbines – Professor Fan’s coal-direct chemical looping chemically combusts the coal.
