    10th Coal Dialogue “Transforming energy supply in the EU: what can coal and clean coal technologies deliver?”

    Brussels, Belgium

    The current focus on energy security is reflected in the European Commission agenda. The 10th Coal Dialogue will present sessions on coal’s contribution to security of supply and sustainability, alongside future challenges.  An opening address by European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) Member, Mr. Dumitru Fornea, will highlight the need for more investment in clean coal technologies – a theme that will be developed in presentations from the European Commission and coal industry representatives.  We also expect Prof. Vladko Panayotov, MEP (Bulgaria, ALDE) to join the meeting and say a few words about his patent for a new technology to reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power plants.  The aim is to give plenty of time for debate with EURACOAL members.
