Established in 2008, the Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (CCCU) is a center for research in advanced coal and carbon capture technologies.
It seeks to create a strong research base and infrastructure to devise the wisest, cleanest ways to use coal and dispatch the carbon dioxide emissions problem.
Richard Axelbaum, PhD, the Stifel & Quinette Jens Professor of Environmental Engineering Science in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, is the director of CCCU.
