Cameron makes 'green coal' a priority

Cameron makes 'green coal' a priority
David Cameron, the Conservative Party leader, has stated his intent to promote the use of energy reducing the carbon emissions produced by coal-fired power stations.

In a speech at Congqing University, in China, he highlighted the benefits of Carbon Capture and Storage technology, a system that captures carbon emissions before storing them in a non-polluting way.

Claiming that the current government has failed to do enough to support the rolling out of the carbon-reducing system, he pledged any future Conservative government would ensure the technology was a priority.

"We cannot afford this kind of delay. So I can announce that developing green coal will be a priority for a Conservative government," Mr Cameron said.

"Our government should ensure that no new coal-fired power station should proceed without using it as a basis for trials for CCS technology," he added.

Earlier this year the UK government announced plans to develop one or more demonstration CCS projects by 2014.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18403013-ADNFCR
