What is Clean Coal Technology

Clean Coal Technology - while cleaner than typical coal-fired power plants, is still using the dirtiest, most-polluting of all fossil fuels. 

When coal is burned, it produces hazardous air pollutants as well as toxic emissions. These emissions include nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and particulates that when breathed, are taken deep into the lungs, and causing respiratory problems for many people. Coal's harmful emissions are responsible for acid rain, polluting water and the source of high mercury emissions in animals, fish and people. This doesn't even start to cover the enormous pollution caused when mining/recovering the coal from coal mines. 

With the rapid decrease in renewable energy technologies and renewable energy resources, such as clean renewable fuels, including; biogas, biomethane, B100 biodiesel and synthesis gas and renewable energy including; biomass gasification, geothermal, hydro, solar, wind and waste heat recovery, with zero to few emissions, maybe its time to just leave coal dead and buried where it is, and focus on clean power and renewable energy?


What is Clean Coal ?

"Clean coal" is the coal industry's last and best hope to stay in business.

Already, 205 coal-fired power plants are scheduled to be closed over the next 5 years due to the emissions, hazardous air pollutants, including mercury emissions, and carbon emissions that coal produces when burned.

Did you know that Coal Fired Power Plants generate 40% of the world’s electricity and
that Coal Fired Power Plants are responsible for 35% of the world's Carbon Dioxide Emissions?!?

Instead of "burning" coal in power boilers, coal can be "gasified" thereby making coal clean!


What is "
Biomass Gasification"?

Biomass Gasification is a technology that can produce cleaner power using coal. Instead of "burning" coal, the coal, and other "biomass" materials, are "gasified" and this process generates Synthesis Gas or "Syngas." Biomass Gasification process using organic wastes such as agricultural waste and urban wood waste. The Synthesis Gas is then used like any other fuel, such as natural gas, which is not a renewable fuel.

Many companies with organic waste couple a Biomass Gasification system with a cogeneration power plant, which is fueled by the Synthesis Gas, for a sustainable power and energy solution.

 

Is Coal Clean?
Many claim coal is not clean, that coal is dirty.

“spending hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars every year for oil, much of it from the Middle East, is just about the single stupidest thing that modern society could possibly do. It’s very difficult to think of anything more idiotic than that.” 
~ R. James Woolsey, Jr., former Director of the CIA

 
Price of Addiction
###
to Foreign Oil

According to R. James Woolsey, for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, “The basic insight is to realize that global warming, the geopolitics of oil, and warfare in the Persian Gulf are not separate problems — they are aspects of a single problem, the West’s dependence on oil."

 

About us:

The founder of the Renewable Energy Institute (REI) was first involved in Net Zero Energy buildings and Solar Trigeneration sm energy system in 2001 - 2002.  This started with family-owned real estate developments in Northern and Southern California.  This interest was accelerated when REI's founder was introduced to the President of a solar company in Los Angeles and their client, the Audubon Nature Center at Deb's Park (Los Angeles) that was planning to build a new 5,000 sf office and conference center. Except, the new building for the Audubon Nature Center was about 1/2 mile from the end of the power lines and a very costly extension of the power lines to their new facility forced them to consider a solar solution. When the Audubon Nature Center's new 5,000 sf office and conference center was completed in 2003, the facility not only featured the Solar Trigeneration sm energy system - they were awarded one of the first Platinum LEED Awards by the USGBC - and the powerlines were still 1/2 mile away! To this day, 100% of the power and energy for the Audubon Nature Center's building is supplied by the Solar Trigeneration sm energy system - whether at 12 noon, or 12 midnite.  (The Audubon's facility also includes a battery energy storage system for back-up power generated by the Rooftop PV panels as well as a thermal energy storage system that stores the excess hot water generated by the evacuated tube collectors).

These early projects led to more client inquiries and engagements with real estate developers, architects and building owners in Southern California, Louisiana and Texas and the advent of a growing Net Zero Energy industry along with Solar Cogeneration sm & Solar Trigeneration sm energy systems. This culminated in a family-owned 200 (Net Zero Energy) home real estate development in Desert Hot Springs which has been approved but not yet constructed. 

During this time, the REI's Founder became a volunteer and Advisor to the University of Texas' Solar Decathlon Competition. He coordinated the donation of the same solar thermal system used at the Audubon Nature Center's facility in Los Angeles, for UT's entry in the 2002 Solar Decathlon Competition in Washington, D.C.  UT's entry in the Solar Decathlon Competition placed 1st in the domestic hot water competition that year (2002) and 4th overall, out of 20 universities that had entered. 

In 2006, after Hurricane Kattrina devastated New Orleans, the REI was formed and several of the REI's board members and a Professor from the University of Texas School of Architecture formed a design team to enter the Brad Pitt/Global Green Rebuild New Orleans Competition.  Our entry also focused on sustainable building solutions and materials as well as the Net Zero Energy concepts, incorporating once again, a Solar Trigeneration sm energy system. 

Today, the REI "Flagship" has chartered the Renewable Energy Institute in Florida, with discussions to open REI state chapters in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Minnesota and Oregon. 

The REI supports greater use of Net Zero Energy systems by architects, builders, homeowners and owners of commercial buildings. This includes "upgrading" homes and commercial buildings to Net Zero Energy.  The REI provides Net Zero Energy; advertising, business development, conferences, e-commerce, education, marketing, online marketing, public relations, renewable energy, sales and strategic marketing solutions for architects, builders, cities, colleges, HVAC contractors, Net Zero Energy developers, real estate developers and universities.

We support the Renewable Energy Institute by donating a portion of our profits to the Renewable Energy Institute in their efforts to reduce fossil fuel use by transitioning to Renewable Energy Technologies and reducing/eliminating Carbon Emissions, Carbon Dioxide Emissions and Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

The Renewable Energy Institute is "Changing The Way The World Makes and Uses Energy" SM by providing research & development, funding and resources that reduce the cost of Renewable Energy Technologies and making a faster transition to Carbon Free Energy, Clean Power Generation, & Pollution Free Power."
