Coal mining in the United States is an industry that is making a lot of noise these days.
The industry is making news these days, but a lot is happening behind the scenes, too.
A coal industry spokesman said this week that the industry has “a lot to be proud of” and the industry’s goal is to remain competitive for decades.
But this isn’t just the coal industry talking.
It’s the federal government.
In a new report from the Coal Energy Industries Association, the coal mining industry has set a goal of maintaining a steady rate of carbon emissions for decades to come.
That’s why the coal company wants to keep the public informed and is making sure it is on the airwaves.
The report outlines a number of ways that coal companies are doing just that, including promoting the use of natural gas as a cleaner energy source, making coal-fired power plants more efficient and making it more efficient for utilities to purchase and sell coal from the mines.
The coal industry has already been the subject of controversy recently after it was revealed that some of the country’s largest coal companies were using coal from a mine in West Virginia to power their power plants.
The companies that use coal for electricity in the US have faced significant criticism for their use of coal.
Coal-fired plants are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the country.
In its report, the Coal Industry Council (CIC) notes that coal is the third-largest source of carbon dioxide emissions after natural gas and oil.
In addition, the CIC says that coal production in the U.S. is projected to continue to grow, reaching nearly 10.6 billion tons of CO2e in 2030.
The industry says it is “working with stakeholders across the country to improve our efficiency and ensure that coal-burning power plants remain competitive and affordable to meet the changing energy demands of our future.”
The report also says that the coal companies aim to reduce carbon emissions through the use or reclamation of coal, the conversion of coal to non-combustible gas, the improvement of fuel efficiency, and the development of a renewable energy source that can meet electricity demand.
For instance, the report notes that “coal-fired generation capacity in the states of Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia has doubled over the past 10 years, and total new coal capacity in these states has increased by over 300% since 2007.”
The coal companies say the use and reclamation techniques are needed to keep their facilities cleaner, more efficient, and less expensive to operate.
Coal is the most carbon intensive fuel in the world.
The coal industry says that while coal plants are able to burn coal for decades, it is not the case that coal plants that are new are not being built.
