New technologies reduce environmental impacts of coal

Higher efficiencies mean that less fuel is used to generate the rated power resulting in lower costs and the formation of fewer greenhouse gases For example a 60 percent-efficient gasification power plant could cut the formation of carbon dioxide by 40 per cent compared to a typical coal combustion plant
