Monday, Jun 15, 2020

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 12 /PRNewswire/ — In response to the DOE’s decision to revive the FutureGen program, ACCCE senior vice president of communications, Joe Lucas, released the following statement:

“The Obama administration is to be commended for their decision to reinstate the FutureGen program and fast-track the development of this extremely valuable project.

“It is reassuring to know that the President supports the development and implementation of clean coal technology into our energy portfolio. Given that FutureGen is the first commercial-scale, “fully integrated” carbon capture and sequestration project in the country, we are hopeful that its success will become a blueprint for the coal-based electricity sector going forward.”

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) is a non-profit, non-partisan partnership of companies involved in producing electricity from coal. Because coal is America’s most abundant energy resource, ACCCE supports energy policies that balance coal’s vital role in meeting our country’s growing need for affordable and reliable electricity with the need to protect the environment. ACCCE also advocates for the development and deployment of advanced clean coal technologies that will produce electricity with near-zero emissions. Headquartered in Alexandria, VA.
