The IEA Clean Coal Centre’s 9th International Conference on Clean Coal Technologies (CCT2019) comes to the USA for the first time on 3-7 June. At the heart of key developments in energy and cleaner coal, the city of Houston, Texas, plays host to this leading forum for innovation in the coal industry.

CCT is a truly international event, typically welcoming over 250 delegates from around 30 countries, and representing industry, academia, and government. Delegates will obtain the latest insight into the new technologies which can meaningfully reduce the environmental impact of coal, as well as hearing expert perspectives on regional energy policy developments and the future outlook for the coal sector worldwide.

Global coal consumption grew in the past year, and coal is projected to remain the world’s largest source of electric power to 2040 and beyond. This ongoing dominance is strongly driven by the urgent need to improve access to affordable electricity in the developing world. However, there is an equally pressing need for this valuable energy and material resource to be exploited as cleanly and efficiently as possible.
