Consortium for Advanced Power Generation

Grants and Contracts Details


It is our intent to form an industry-govern ment-academic consortium which shares the common goal of eliminating current and emerging environmental problems that are attributed to emissions from coal-fired electric power plants. Specifically, the mission of the Consortium will be to identify, develop, and demonstrate practical technologies for reducing C02 and other air-borne emissions associated with coal-derived power production. The consortium will initially focus on reducing such emissions from Kentucky's existing and aging fleet of coal-fired electric power plants in order to extend the useful lifetime of these plants. Over time, the Consortium will redirect its efforts toward mitigating potential emissions from newer, advanced generation technologies such as supercritical pulverized coal combustion and Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) plants. The requested funds from the State will be used to leverage additional funding from private industry.
