Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization

Washington University in St. Louis has dedicated more than $60 million in financial resources during the past year to advance education and research related to energy, environment and sustainability. The new consortium will receive additional support in the form of research partnership commitments of $5 million each from Arch Coal and Peabody Energy and $2 million from Ameren, to be paid over five years. The consortium's goal is to bring university researchers, industries, foundations and government organizations together to research clean coal technology, making St. Louis the nation's center for clean coal research.

The center operates under the direction of Professor Richard Axelbaum. For more information, please visit
