CCT2017 – 8th International Conference on Clean Coal Technologies – 8-12 May 2017

For its 8th edition, the IEA Clean Coal Centre’s international conference on clean coal technologies returns to its origins on the beautiful Italian island of Sardinia, taking place on 8-12 May 2017 in the city of Cagliari.
In the 14 years since the first event, the CCT series has established itself as a leading forum for the showcasing of state-of-the-art coal research, with the previous event assembling 200 delegates from 30 different countries. A broad mix of industry, academic, and government representatives, combined with its comprehensive scope, creates an ideal opportunity for networking within the international coal community.
CCT2017 will be held in the congress centre of Cagliari’s exclusive T Hotel, where three days of technical sessions and keynotes will cover all aspects of clean coal technologies and highlight the most cutting edge developments. Topics will include:

  • Developments in carbon capture
  • High efficiency and flexible power plant
  • Coal gasification and conversion
  • Pollutant controls
  • Low-rank coal utilisation
  • Biomass co-firing and co-gasification
  • Policy, financing, and social acceptance

The event will also include optional visits to Sotacarbo’s research facilities, with its gasification and CO2 capture pilots, and Enel’s 340 MW circulating fluidised bed power plant at Portovesme. Please see the event website at to sign up for updates.
