3rd Annual

Clean Coal West Symposium

mplement Changes, Overcome Challenges & Maximize Opportunities in the North American Clean Coal Market

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

About

Canada has close to one quarter of the world's coal reserves and is considered an obvious solution provider for the increased global energy demand. The surging price of oil and natural gas have made the need to find an alternative, reliable, cost competitive source of energy a top priority.

In many parts of the world (and in many parts of this country) coal is regarded as the most viable source of energy, not only because of its abundance, but also because of its economic potential. If clean coal is going to become the fuel of the future, then pressing industry issues including environmental concerns, CO2 capture and storage, gasification for enhanced oil recovery and new regulations are only a few of the issues that industry needs to discuss.

The Canadian Institute's 3rd annual Clean Coal Symposium was the ideal forum to hear from an outstanding faculty of industry experts on the issues that matter most. Our publication, a collection of presentation materials from government officials, senior executives, top scientists, regulatory authorities and clean coal leaders will provide you with the pivotal information you need on the latest trends and innovations.

Highlights from this event include:

  • The latest on gasification including environmental impacts and the changing regulatory landscape
  • The impact of climate change and green house gas emissions on your business
  • Future opportunities for CO2 capture and storage investigated
  • Best practices for mercury emissions and new regulations explored
