Limiting global temperature rise from climate change requires substantial cuts in global CO2 emissions. To meet this challenge, Australian coal producers invest in the COAL21 Fund to support the research of low-emissions coal technologies.
To reduce emissions while delivering cost-effective and reliable energy supply, COAL21 funds the research and demonstration of low-emissions coal technologies such as carbon capture and storage.
INVESTING IN CCS RESEARCH
Carbon capture and storage is a proven technology used in many parts of the world. Coal plants with CCS can significantly reduce emissions while maintaining grid stability.
SUPPORTING GROUND-BREAKING PROJECTS
COAL21 funds projects to build community confidence in CCS technology for safe, long-term CO2 storage and to ensure emissions from coal mines can be safely abated.
INVESTING IN SAFE REMOVAL OF METHANE
The COAL21 Fund has invested in two projects aimed at addressing safety concerns associated with the use of technology to lower greenhouse gas emissions from coal mines.
