    The Atlantic Council and the Global CCS Institute convened a roundtable discussion in Washington, DC, on September 9, 2013, to explore the energy, environmental, and technology policy dimensions of the Kemper County Energy Facility -- a state-of-the-art coal gasification power plant with carbon capture and storage (CCS) for enhanced hydrocarbon recovery. The facility is currently being built by Southern Company, Mississippi Power, and KBR in Kemper County, Mississippi.

      The Kemper County energy facility is a lignite gasification power plant built by Southern Company and its operating subsidiary, Mississippi Power, in Kemper County, Mississippi, USA. Kemper will capture at least 65% of its CO2 emissions for use in enhanced oil recovery operations. With a generating capacity of 582 MW, Kemper is the only coal power plant of its size currently under construction integrating coal gasification, carbon capture and storage, and enhanced oil recovery technologies.

        The Atlantic Council and the Global CCS Institute recognize the need for the further development and broader deployment of energy and industrial technologies capable of reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) and CO2 utilization. Major energy forecast shows that fossil fuels -- coal, in particular -- are essential to meeting future energy demand and ensuring economic security and stability through fuel diversity.

        • Beijing's Pollution Problem Is Everyone's Problem

          China’s Smog Is So Bad They’re Now Calling It a ‘Nuclear Winter The pollution is threatening lives and crops RECOMMENDED FOR YOU A Portrait of Domestic Violence Suicide Bomber Intercepted in Afghanistan Pedestrian Bridge Collapse Caught on Camera in China by Taboola On Wednesday morning in Beijing, we fitted our two boys with their mini-masks and sent them off to school. Air pollution, according to the U.S. embassy index, had hit a dangerous particulate concentration of 497. (The World Health Organization warns against daily exposure to PM2.5 fine particulates above 25.) At 500 on the Beijing scale—which the U.S. embassy has dryly dubbed “beyond index” because who would think air pollution could climb so high?—school would be shuttered. Three index points were all that were keeping our kids in class. By the time our children, ages 6 and 4, were starting school, the U.S. air-quality index had hit 512. By 11:00 am, it had reached 537. The air is off-the-charts bad. The U.S. embassy cautions that at this level, “everyone may experience more serious health effects.” Even the Chinese government, whose own air-quality monitoring often records pollution at a lower intensity than the American embassy does, recommends that residents should wear masks and avoid outdoor activities. As the foul air intensified over the weekend, the nation’s senior climate-change official noted that “China’s pollution is at an unbearable stage.” Another scientist compared the smog blanket to living through a “nuclear winter” because the air is so impenetrable that crops are not getting enough light and becoming stunted, threatening disaster for many farmers. As the air pollution has worsened over the last couple years, local awareness has spiked, in part because state media are now allowed to report on the smog. People who used to complain to me about the “weather” now acknowledge a human hand in the acrid air. Locals are demanding their government do something; a slew of new anti-pollution measures have been unveiled but to little apparent effect so far. One man in the notoriously smoggy northern city of Shijiazhuang is trying to sue the city government for not adequately tackling the foul air, according to the Yanzhao Evening News, a local paper. He is believed to be the first person to launch such a lawsuit. Meanwhile, on Feb. 25, China’s President Xi Jinping left the climate-controlled confines of China’s leadership compound for a stroll through Beijing’s historic alleyways. The walkabout was unexpected, although Xi had taken another surprise tour of the capital two months before. Contrary to his government’s own advice on the toxic air, the Chinese leader did not wear a mask

                    http://www.pacoalalliance.com/ https://www.facebook.com/PaCoalAlliance https://twitter.com/PACoalAlliance John Pippy, President and CEO of the Pennsylvania Coal Alliance, appeared on Comcast Newsmakers to discuss the economic impact of coal on Pennsylvania's economy and how coal provides low cost energy to businesses and consumers throughout the Commonwealth. ------------------------------------------------- The Pennsylvania Coal Alliance (Alliance), founded in 2012, is an initiative of PA bituminous coal mining operators, their employees, and industry suppliers to educate the public and policymakers about the coal industry in Pennsylvania. We advocate for more than 41,000 Pennsylvania coal workers, indirect workers, and their families -- but the reach of the industry, and thus, our mission, is much broader than that. If you use an air conditioner in the summer; if you worry about the cost of your monthly electric bill; if you buy from American businesses; or if you merely want reliable and increasingly clean energy that you can afford -- then you are directly impacted by the future of coal. After an unprecedented attack from Washington, it became clear that we needed a stronger and more unified voice to tell the whole story of today's coal industry in Pennsylvania -- and the importance it plays in our economy tomorrow.
