Coal is a domestic resource that has contributed to U.S. economic growth for over a century. However, in a shifting energy generation paradigm, innovation is needed to extract the full economic value from coal-derived materials, including coal of any rank, coal-blends, coal-wastes, coal-derived solids, coal-derived liquids, or any combination thereof. The Advanced Coal Processing program delivers solutions to this challenge with novel technologies for producing valuable products from coal-derived sources. Laboratory and pilot-scale research and development (R&D) within the program will develop future uses for coal outside of traditional thermal and metallurgical markets.
