DOE PRESSES CLEAN COAL PROGRAM
The U.S. Department of Energy has chosen 13 more clean coal technology (CCT) projects in its third round of competition. If private sponsors and DOE can agree on final terms, the 13 projects will be financed with $540 million in federal funds and $777 million from sponsors and some state governments. They are to join 27 other active clean coal ventures selected in 1986 and 1988 competitions. The CCT program has projects under way or planned in 19 states.
