The collaborative multi-year project to develop and test carbon dioxide capture and conversion methodologies in coal combustors will be conducted synergistically between researchers at Washington University and the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. An understanding of the combustion characteristics of various coal seams (US, India and China) in conventional (air) and oxy-coal modalities will be developed. This knowledge of characteristics of the combustion exhaust will be used to design carbon dioxide capture and conversion systems, which will be integrated to the exhaust of a coal combustor.

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)
