Clean coal technology is constantly evolving. We’re continually making use of this natural resource more efficient. I recently had the opportunity to tour the Prairie State Energy Campus for Designing Spaces: Think Green.

The episode is centered around the latest technologies and developments the coal-based electricity industry has been using to make this plant one of the most efficient and low emissions producing coal-fueled power plants in the nation.

Prairie State Energy Campus is the largest coal-fueled power plant today. It produces more than 7 million tons of coal a year, with the plant’s first unit currently producing 800 megawatts of power.
