Awards for Research Projects about Clean Coal Technologies

As part of President Obama’s investment strategy in clean coal technologies, nine universities in the U.S. will receive about $300,000 each for their research projects in development of technologies and materials for clean coal energy, reports Inside Indiana Business.

"Advancing the development of clean coal technologies is an important part of President Obama's strategy to develop every source of American energy and ensure the United States leads the world in the global clean energy race and continues to take advantage of domestic resources here at home," said U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu. These university research projects will help build on extensive progressive made by this Administration to promote innovative technologies that help make coal-fired energy cleaner and more cost-competitive, while training the next generation of scientists and engineers in cutting-edge clean coal technologies."
