Cleaner coal in China
20 April 2009
The IEA launched its latest publication, Cleaner Coal in China, in Beijing on 20 April.
IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka noted that China’s coal sector has made remarkable progress over the last decade, fuelling rapid economic growth and bringing a better quality of life for China’s citizens. Yet China and other coal-using nations face persistent difficulties in using coal more cleanly.
“The speed and scale of China’s expanding coal use have brought a new urgency to deploying the full range of clean coal technologies,” said Mr. Tanaka, adding, “China already has most of the technologies the world has to offer. It just needs to use them more effectively and more widely.”
