Clean Energy -Clean coal technologies continue
to improve our air quality while providing reliable, affordable
electricity to power our modern world.
- Low-Sulfur Coal
Arch has a leading position in the three major
U.S. low-sulfur coal basins.
- Clean Coal Technologies
State-of-the-art equipment and new treatments
can be used by power plants to further reduce
- Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle
IGCC technology offers the potential for new
coal-fueled plants and retrofits to achieve
gas-fueled emissions with higher efficiency
Coal-Gasification -Coal can be converted to
natural gas or hydrogen to help feed our energy hungry world.
- Coal to Natural Gas
In the United States, natural gas reserves are
increasingly difficult to reach and coal is
plentiful. Converting coal to gas can help
alleviate supply constraints and reduce energy
- Coal to Hydrogen
The U.S. Department of Energy’s hydrogen from
coal research plan seeks a pilot plant by 2015
and the technology to alleviate transportation,
cost and storage barriers to a hydrogen economy.
Coal-Liquefaction -Converting coal into liquid
fuels, such as diesel, gasoline, jet fuel and heating oil, makes
good use of our national resources.
- Coal to
America has more proven coal reserves than Saudi
Arabia has oil. Maximizing the use of our vast
coal supply means less dependence on foreign
