UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The EMS Energy Institute is hosting the International Conference on Coal Science and Technology (ICCS&T) at Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. On-site and one-day registrations are welcome.

The 14th ICCS&T has attracted a large global interest with more than 200 technical papers from 29 countries. There will be more than 230 attendees from academia, research centers, industry and national laboratories. The presentation topics cover combustion, gasification, ash chemistry, trace elements, coal structure and chemistry, coal tar, coke, spontaneous combustion, coalbed methane, CO2 sequestration, carbon capture and coal-to-liquids.

ICCS&T is held every two years in different international settings. Thirteen previous conferences have taken place under the auspices of ICCS, while the last four conferences were organized under the auspices of ICCS&T: Spain (2011), Cape Town (2009), Nottingham (2007), and Okinawa (2005). The goal of the conference is to bring together the academic, industrial and government communities to exchange ideas, concepts and innovations for the shared purpose of facilitating coal research advances.
