Clean Tech Conference Brings World To Pittsburgh

A clean tech conference in Pittsburgh has focused world attention on the region’s ascendance as a leader in environmental technology and a trend-setter in the burgeoning green economy.

The CO2 Capture Technology for Existing Plants R&D Meeting, sponsored by the National Energy Technology Laboratory March 24-26, 2009, attracted researchers from around the world to discuss the latest in technologies to clean up coal-fired power plant emissions.

From its lab in Pittsburgh’s South Hills, NETL explores technologies capable of capturing greater than 90 percent of the CO2 from existing coal-fired power plants at less than a 35 percent increase in the cost of electrical services. These technologies are envisioned to be ready for commercial deployment by 2020.
