9:00 am – 10:30 am
The Coal Industry’s Regulatory Minefield
Luke Popovich, Vice President, Communications, National Mining Association
Prospects for a highly partisan and divided 112th Congress are likely to doom efforts to pass comprehensive energy legislation, let alone a cap-and-trade bill to control climate change. This will force the administration to rely on the regulatory agencies to implement its environmental goals. Consequently, the coal industry will face major challenges not from the nation’s elected representatives but from unelected officials – many of whom subscribe to the ABC policy: Anything But Coal.
*Dave Carris, President of the Coal Preparation Society of America (CPSA) will provide a brief outline of CPSA’s vision and strategic plan for promoting coal preparation and disseminating information to its membership.

|General Session: Engineered Coal -Can Engineering & Technology Achieve Environmental & Efficiency Requirements for Utility & Industrial Consumers in Today’s Market?
Wednesday, May 4
12:45 am - 1:45 pm
Janet Gellici, CAE,
Chief Executive Officer,
American Coal Council
River Basin Energy
Utilizing both engineering and new technology, opportunities exist today to generate economically viable and environmentally compliant electricity from coal. Taken together, these new methods of “pre-combustion” solutions, extend the scope of traditional coal prep. Numerous processes are now in operation or under development to treat and enhance coal prior to combustion. Engineering coal’s characteristics prior to combustion results in improved energy conversion efficiency and environmental performance, including lower SO2, NOx, CO, mercury, chlorine, dioxin and CO2 emissions.
Engineered coal technologies include:
- Coal Preparation - this most widely used form of pre-combustion treatment involves cleaning coal via a wet, dry or chemical process to lower ash and reduce certain chemical elements that generate post-combustion emissions.
- Coal Upgrading/Drying - coal upgrading technologies primarily remove moisture from lower-ranked coals, thus increasing the energy density (Btu/lb) of the enhanced product and reducing regulated and CO2 emissions.
- Coal Treatment - these technologies use additives to alter the coal’s combustion characteristics, resulting in beneficial emissions reductions.
- Biomass-Coal Blends -combining coal and biomass into a homogeneous product results in a higher heat content, improved efficiency and a renewable component (biomass) that enhances environmental performance without costly plant modifications or down-rating from loss of mill power.
The American Coal Council’s Coal 2.0 Alliance members represent the leading developers of these various technologies. Alliance member companies will provide brief presentations detailing their specific technology offerings.
