Clean-coal program change.

Clean-coal program change

In response to complaints from the coal industry and utilities, the Department of Energy (DOE) has modified its repayment plan for the new clean-coal technology program (SN: 3/1/86, p. 132). Originally, DOE, which would provide up to half of the funds for selected research projects proposed by industry, had called for an equivalent share in any revenues generated by a project. Now, Energy Secretary John S. Herrington says the government will ask for repayment of its share only if the project is successful and profitable. Under the original conditions, many companies had been reluctant to submit proposals.
