Comments Off on Ohio Researchers Unveil Emissions-Free Method of Extracting Energy from Coal

Researchers at Ohio State University have discovered a new way to extract energy from coal while preventing 99 percent of the carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. The technique, called Coal-Direct Chemical Looping (CDCL), harnesses coal’s energy without burning it. This new groundbreaking technology, which could revolutionize one of the dirtiest industries on the planet, will be tested at a larger-scale pilot plant currently under construction in Alabama.

Photo: Inhabitat Clean coal is friendlier-sounding euphemism for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), the technological conceit of snagging emissions belched out by coal plants and storing them under ground in order to keep them from entering the atmosphere. CCS has long been touted as a clean energy solution, and a political means of reassuring coal states that their lifeblood isn’t too dirty to burn after all.

Now the automaker has finally revealed the Leaf’s pricing plan: $32,780 before incentives, or $25,280 after a federal tax credit of $7,500. The vehicle will also be available for lease at a price of $349 per month.
