KY Carbon Emissions Reduction
By Angela Hatton
Lexington, KY – A consortium of government agencies, utilities and research groups will try to find cost-effective technologies to reduce and manage carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants. The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research pulled together the partners, who are expected to spend $24 million over 10 years to support research. Five Kentucky utilities will contribute to the program. State government will kick in matching funds of up to $1 million a year.
