On Monday, the Department of Energy (DOE) issued more than $51 million in clean coal grants to university, state and industry partners. One of the beneficiaries of the grant is the University of Kentucky, who will receive $14.5 million. The university will use its funding to test its clean coal technology at the 700MW E.W. Brown plant. The project’s main goal is to capture 90 percent of the CO2 emissions from the plant without increasing the cost of electricity by more than 35 percent. Other beneficiaries of the grants include Linde LLC (NJ), Neumann Systems Group (CO) and Southern Co.
