The Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization funds research to foster the environmentally responsible use of coal for three main purposes: power generation, materials/chemicals synthesis, and fuel production. The research program encompasses a wide range of issues surrounding coal utilization, including technology R&D, policy, and assessment of impacts on air and water quality, climate, and health effects. Research projects are led by faculty members at Washington University, and are conducted in collaboration with researchers from international partner universities. Please see our Projects page to learn more details about ongoing research.
The Consortium is under the umbrella of the International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (I-CARES)
International collaborations are fostered through the McDonnell Academy Global Energy & Environment Partnership (MAGEEP)
