Final CCT project set

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced terms for its final Clean Coal Technology project, the last in a series of five rounds of competitive selections over a decade, with 45 projects, 13 of which are complete and four which have been discontinued. CPICOR Management Company L.L.C. will demonstrate a new technology combining direct iron-making with electric power generation. The project will demonstrate the integration of a coal/ore reduction iron-making process called COREX, with combined-cycle power generation to produce 3,300 tons per day of hot metal and 195 MW of electricity, according to the National Mining Association. DOE`s comprehensive report on the project is available from the Office of Fossil Energy Communications at (202) 586-6503.
