ABSTRACT
The article examines progress with regards to transforming coal into a zero-emission fuel. Coal technologists have been suggesting carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, titled "The Future of Coal," indicates that the first commercial CCS plants will not be on stream until 2030 at the earliest. Energy company Shell Oil Co. does not foresee CCS being in widespread use until 2050.
