While coal is the least expensive fuel for power generation, it is also the most carbon-intensive fuel source. In an increasingly carbon-constrained world, were working to develop new technologies to reduce the amount of CO 2 released from coal-fired power plants. Traditional carbon reduction technologies require extensive equipment modifications that are often cost-prohibitive.
Nov 08, 2011 Coal Biomass to Fuels at the University of Kentucky Congressmen Geoff Davis and Hal Rogers were on hand November 8, 2011, for the groundbreaking of a UK coal/biomass-to-liquids unit that could lead to development of vehicle fuels made from Kentucky coal and biomass.
Currently, CAER is undertaking three projects to investigate the process, solvent and operations effects on the cost of CO 2 capture..

efficiency by 5%. Even higher efficiencies could be attained by integrating coal gasification with a closed Brayton Cycle. To make it happen, need compact and efficient heat exchangers. (Net Power is developing this approach for natural gas plants). Dr. Kunlei Liu, Center for Applied Energy Research, University of Kentucky
Nov 07, 2018 One of the largest sources of rare earth elements in the United States is the Fire Clay coal seam in Eastern Kentucky. Since coal is a major economic source in parts of our state, providing a means of recovering an important byproduct adds economic strength and
Although all of Kentucky was probably covered by Pennsylvanian sediments at one time, erosion has completely removed Pennsylvanian rocks from all areas but the Eastern and Western Kentucky Coal Fields. During the Pennsylvanian, often called the Coal Age, parts of
the value of unmined coal. The current form of the unmined minerals tax began in 1976 with House Bill 677 and has experienced significant developments since then. The changes reflect policy motivations prevalent at the time of legislative enactments and illustrate a struggle on the part of
The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (UK CAER) is home to the largest carbon fiber spin line at any institution in North America. Over the past decade, our researchers have built a solution spinning line that draws visitors, collaborators, and research partners from across the Commonwealth, the nation and the world.

Nov 07, 2018 Professor Rick Honaker recently launched a pilot-scale processing plant aimed at recovering REEs from coal and its byproducts in Webster County. Well start off producing a concentrate mix, and weve been successful in the lab in a continuous form actually producing a 99 percent pure rare earth product. So, well be doing that, but well also be taking that one step further ...
Apr 06, 2020 A new studio and charette, led by the University of Kentucky, SomeWhere Appalachia, and Only If, wants to transform former coal landscapes into art parks.
Sep 20, 2019 Coal is formed from the physical and chemical alteration of peat. Peat is composed of plant materials that accumulate in wetlands ( bogs and fens), which break down through the process of peatification. If peats are buried, then the peats can be altered into different ranks of coal through the process of coalification.
How Did the Coal-Bearing Rocks Form? The numerous layers of coal beds in both of Kentuckys coal fields are intermixed with shale and sandstone (and rarely with thin limestones). Most of the major coal beds (there are about 45 to 50 in eastern Kentucky) were formed as widespread peat swamps or mires during the Pennsylvanian Period.
Sep 19, 2019 In 1996, the Education Committee of the Kentucky Geological Survey, in conjunction with the Kentucky Society of Professional Geologists, established the Earth Science Education Network (ESEN). Originally, the network provided a group of geologists who served as resource persons for teachers.
Coal bands are formed from peat, which is mostly composed of plant debris with some amount of minerals. The thin sediment partings in most coals form when the original coal-forming peats are flooded, but at least one parting in Kentucky formed from volcanic ash that fell in the coal-forming peat. Coal seams commonly contain rock partings.
Sep 18, 2019 Peat and Peatification. Peat is soil-like, partially decayed plant material that accumulates in wetlands. Most people learn that coal is formed in swamps, but this is not completely accurate. The term swamps can be applied to many different types of wetlands,
Sep 19, 2019 When Did Kentuckys Coal Form? All the mined coal in Kentucky is bituminous. The original peat deposits or layers that later became coal were laid down with other sediments during the Pennsylvanian Period (sometimes called the Coal Age). The Pennsylvanian Period started about 323 million years ago, ended about 290 million years ago, and lasted about 33 million years.

Kentuckys taxation of unmined coal was motivated by an effort within the state to tax the owners of unmined coal, who were primarily out-of-state entities. The coal industry fought to counter this effort and prevent another tax on mining operations. Taxation of unmined coal was a controversial

Mar 27, 2017 With an eye toward the development of cleaner coal-derived liquid fuels that can someday power cars, trucks, tanks, and even jets, the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been supporting researchers at the University of Kentucky as they close in on an innovation that could someday advance the state of the art for transportation fuels production.
The decline in coal plants is evidenced by the 20% of 500 coal plants in the United States that are expected to cease to produce energy in the next few years. 2 The drive away from coal-based power in eastern Kentucky has created opportunities for new energy initiatives, such as renewable energy based approaches.
