The US Department of Energy (DOE) has chosen six new projects under the University Coal Research (UCR) programme that aim to find long-term clean coal solutions.
Running since 1979, the UCR programme supports research projects that advance the science of coal technologies at US colleges and universities. The six projects fall into two categories: materials development to support direct power extraction and low-cost distributed sensing of fossil energy power systems.
Winning institutions includes the universities of Idaho, Washington and Nebraska-Lincoln in the materials development category and Texas at Arlington, Cincinnati and Massachusetts Lowell in the distributed sensing category. A full description of the projects can be found here.
