NETL played a pivotal role in this week’s 2019 Clearwater Clean Energy Conference, one of the nation’s premier conferences on coal technologies for more than 40 years. Nearly a dozen Lab employees shared their work to develop fossil-energy technologies that promote responsible stewardship of the environment. The 44th International Technical Conference on Clean Energy, as the event is also known, wrapped up today in Clearwater, Florida. The weeklong event provided an extensive overview of emerging, evolving and innovative technologies, fuels and/or equipment in the power generation industry, attracting hundreds of participants from around the world for technical sessions, short courses, panel discussions and more. In addition to sharing NETL’s work, the conference offered valuable learning and networking opportunities for Lab participants. Ron Breault, Ph.D., supervisory general engineer for NETL’s Thermal Sciences team, helped organize the event as a conference co-chair, while Massood Ramezan, Ph.D., senior program director for NETL contractor KeyLogic, served on the conference committee.
