ISGS preserves database of coal research

The Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) is the new long-term home for an extensive database of Illinois coal research. 

The Office of Coal Development, under the oversight of the Illinois Clean Coal Institute (ICCI), administered the largest state-sponsored coal research and development program in the United States. Over the 35-year life of the program, approximately $100 million supported nearly 1,000 projects focusing on carbon management, advanced coal mining technologies, power generation and plant efficiencies, flue gas cleaning, and coal chemistry.

The result is almost 800 technical reports, which can now be searched and browsed on the ISGS website:
