Miguel walked into José’s office a few minutes before the meeting. Ever alert, his eyes wandered to the trash next to José’s desk. He stooped down to pick out a scrunched-up A4 document with a glossy card cover. It was the latest assessment of cleaner coal technology, or what engineers called Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS). There were color brochures in the trash as well, which promoted better scrubber technologies, more efficient burn technologies such as fluidized beds, and combined cycle Brayton-Rankine powerplants. There was another which went into detail about some of the newer technologies like coal liquefaction, which did not burn the coal directly, but converted it into syngas.
