Outreach Programme

US Department of State

US Department of State

We are working on an exciting US Department of State project targeting emissions of mercury in India and Indonesia. The project is focused on knowledge sharing and capacity building in Southeast Asia, targeting emissions from the coal combustion sector. Stakeholders in the region will be empowered to identify regionally appropriate means to reduce mercury emissions.

In India: this part of the project concentrates on knowledge sharing and capacity building, focusing on monitoring emissions, reducing emissions, and flexibility in operating plants.

In Indonesia: here we are evaluating mercury emissions from the coal sector by ranking plants to identify those that will benefit the most from mercury reduction strategies. Also including capacity building, this part of the project allows stakeholders to determine the most cost-effective methods of reducing total mercury emissions from the coal combustion sector.

Our Outreach Programme

The ICSC runs an extensive outreach programme, to deliver the key messages from our studies on all aspects of coal production, transport and utilisation; to inform the debate on the cleaner use of coal; and to encourage the take up of improved technologies – particularly in developing economies.

The ICSC collaborates with and supports a range of organisations such as UN Economic Commission for Europe, UN Environment, USAID, the Asian Development Bank, the IEA and other Technology Collaboration Programmes, APEC and VGB.

During 2019-20, the outreach programme included running two ICSC workshops, in Vietnam and Japan, as well as our major Clean Coal Technologies Conference in Houston, USA, participating in other organisations’ conferences and associated events, as well as taking part in a wide range of topical meetings with international stakeholders.
