Coal-to-Gas and Coal-to-Hydrogen Facilities with Carbon Capture and Storage pursued by Peabody and GreatPoint

18 February 2010 - Peabody Energy and GreatPoint Energy signed an agreement to pursue development of coal-to-gas and coal-to-hydrogen projects in the United States and around the world with carbon capture and storage (CCS).

The projects would be developed using GreatPoint's proprietary Bluegas technology, which utilizes catalytic hydromethanation to create pure hydrogen and substitute natural gas (SNG). The hydrogen will be used for industrial applications or combusted to generate electricity. The SNG can be transported in the existing pipeline infrastructure and used as fuel in home heating, power plants or industrial processes.
