Global Market for Clean Coal

Global Market for Clean Coal

Despite the progress in renewable energies, coal still remains the most common and economical fossil fuel that is used globally. In 2014, over six billion metric tons of coal was produced. It was primarily used for electricity generation and remained the predominant source of electricity around the world.

With coal-fired power plants expected to continue to dominate power generation in the coming years, governments around the world are stressing the importance of clean coal technologies. Clean coal refers to lowering emissions from usage of coal downstream, upstream as well as power generation. Therefore, clean coal refers to the technologies or processes that can be deployed to lower emissions from coal.

Taiyou Research's report looks at the primary technologies and equipment that are used to clean coal. The report covers the following:

A profile of the global coal industry analyzing the importance of energy security and coal, coal production statistics, coal consumption statistics, industry segmentation, consolidation and industry forecast.

An introduction to clean coal technology through an overview of clean coal technology, advancing pollution control, coal washing, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), pressurized circulating fluid bed combustion (PCFBC), supercritical pulverized coal and ultra-supercritical pulverized coal, and opportunities and economics in clean coal.

An analysis of the global market for clean coal technologies including industry statistics with data ranging from 2005 to 2020, a look at the IGCC market, at the pressurized circulating fluidized bed combustion market statistics, supercritical pulverized coal statistics, market statistics of ultra-supercritical pulverized coal, and others.

A regional analysis is conducted of the following regions 0 Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, North America and South America. The market for clean coal is analyzed in these regions including clean coal projects both planned as well as ongoing.

Factors impacting the global market for clean coal such as associated costs, clean air initiatives, environmental regulations, expansion of renewable energy, increase in installed generation capacity, and other factors are analyzed.
