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.
