What if we could continue to use coal, preserve the jobs related to coal, and simultaneously reduce or eliminate the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by burning coal for fuel. What if, through other uses for coal, we could reduce the greenhouse gases used in the building sector, one of the largest sources of GHGs.
Dr. Nicola Ferralis is a Research Scientist in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT and Program Manager for the MIT Energy Initiative Low Energy Carbon Center on Energy Storage. A lot of his work is on technologies related to energy. He will be speaking with us about the opportunities to use coal in far better ways than burning it for fuel as well as environmental issues related to the mining of coal.
