Scientific Description
The strategic goal of the Clean Coal Technology Centre is to conduct innovative research activities in the frame of clean coal technologies to limit the environmental impact of coal production and utilization as well as to increase the energy safety of Poland and EU. The direct goal is the creating of facilities to conduct research designated to: coal combustion, coal gasification, coal oxy-combustion, process gases separation, emissions control, implementation of nanotechnology in clean coal technology processes. In particular, the CCTW is designated to conduct research oriented on their commercialization, relating to: the development of advanced technologies of coal utilization with minimization of CO2 emissions; increasing the conversion efficiency as well as the minimization of CCS costs; development of technologies of chemical processing of coal; coal with biomass utilization; increasing the energy safety.
