Statement of Purpose

The Coal Utilization Research Council supports the use of coal in the United States and worldwide and advocates the formation of credible and effective partnerships between industry and government to pursue the development of technologies that will enable coal to be used economically, efficiently and in an environmentally compatible manner.

The CURC has developed, in coordination with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), an agreed upon statement (or "Roadmap") that specifically addresses the importance of the economic, efficient and environmentally-friendly use of coal.  Underscoring the importance of coal as a vital component of the energy mix for the U.S. and the world, the roadmap identifies the research, development and demonstration (RD&D) objectives necessary for coal to maintain its place in the nation’s energy mix.
