Can CCS technology help US coal in the era of the Clean Power Plan?

August 21, 2015 (5:17 mins)



The Clean Power Plan has many US coal producers unnerved and power generators considering if it's worth making coal-fired generation more compliant with stricter carbon emissions standards. Andrew Moore, managing editor of Platts Coal Trader, and Jeff McDonald, associate editor, explain how CPP standards are leaving lots of uncertainty in their wake, since coal consumption by the power sector could drop significantly. They also look at whether carbon capture utilization and storage -- which would tie the coal industry more to the currently low-priced oil industry -- or carbon capture sequestration can offer a beacon of hope to coal producers who supply power generators.
