China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

The United States and China took a ma­jor step on Tues­day to­ward agreed de­vel­op­ment of “clean coal” tech­nolo­gies, which could help boost the for­tunes of the over­all coal sec­tor. The agree­ment be­tween the US Depart­ment of Energy and China’s Na­tional Energy Ad­min­is­tra­tion will al­low the two na­tions to share re­search re­sults as they re­fine tech­nolo­gies to cap­ture the green­house gases pro­duced from burn­ing coal, said Christo­pher Smith, the USDE’s as­sis­tant sec­re­tary for fos­sil energy.
