US-India Coal Working Group Meeting
June 5-7, 2007 (Washington, DC)

The fourth Energy Dialogue Coal Working Group (CWG) meeting was held in Washington, DC on June 5-7, 2007. The meeting was chaired by Acting Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Thomas Shope and Dr. S.P. Seth, Additional Secretary of India's Ministry of Coal. Over 50 participants from the U.S. and Indian governments, industry, national laboratories, and research institutions discussed recent accomplishments and the status of CWG projects, and reviewed three joint research and development projects addressing coal preparation that will promote energy security, pollution reduction and mitigation of greenhouse gases in ways that do not hamper economic development. In addition, discussions focused regulatory frameworks to ensure safety and environmental protection, and opportunities to implement CO2 capture and storage, and clean fossil energy technologies.
