Firms to Present Breakthroughs in Environmentally Friendly Use of Coal, Coal Slurry and Coal Wastes at Coal Technology Conference
Robert E. "Bud" Klepper will outline his innovations which make it possible to unlock both the chemical and heat energy of coal in an environmentally sound way. His technology makes it possible to use all grades of coal, including coal waste and slurry, to generate clean energy and transportation fuels at competitive prices.
PARKLAND, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2005 -- Robert E. Klepper of BioConversion Technology, LLC will present a paper at the annual International Technical Conference on Coal Utilization & Fuel Systems. The conference is sponsored by the Coal Technology Association in conjunction with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Fuels & Combustion Technologies Division, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of the U.S. DOE.
It is one of the Association's major programs and is one of the world's leading technical conferences on coal technologies. The conference will be held April 17 - 21, 2005, in Clearwater, Florida, USA and Mr. Klepper is scheduled to present on April 20 and will be sponsored by Phoenix Biofuels, LLC.
The paper, entitled “Clean Coal Technology – Beyond IGCC” was jointly authored by Mr. Klepper and Laurence W. Stewart Sr. Managing Member of Phoenix Biofuels, LLC. The paper will describe unique gasification and related innovations developed by Mr. Klepper which will greatly expand the ability of the United States to unlock the energy of its abundant coal reserves as well as certain heretofore unusable coal waste streams for power, liquid fuels including ethanol, methanol, hydrogen, etc., and other products in environmentally friendly ways.
William Eng, Managing Member of Phoenix Biofuels observed: “Prior to Mr. Klepper’s innovations the highest and best use for coal was to extract its energy through combustion in the form of heat. Unfortunately that method lacks flexibility and pollutes the environment unless expensive pollution abatement equipment is employed. Mr. Klepper has found a way to unlock the much more desirable and flexible chemical energy in coal to create power, liquid fuels and other products. Moreover, he does it in a way that is very environmentally friendly and at costs that are competitive in today’ market place, and were competitive even before the recent run-up in oil prices. We think it is going to force decision makers at all levels to reconsider what is possible and responsible in generating clean energy.”
Mr. Klepper’s innovations not only make it possible to extract clean energy from all forms of coal (including brown and high sulfur coal) but also makes it possible to do the same with coal slurry, coal tailings, pet coke, oil shale, waste oil, or any other carbonaceous material, singly or in combination. The Phoenix Group is working closely with a number of public and private entities to utilize the Klepper innovations to tap the enormous power reserves of coal and coal wastes in several states.
