Who Are The Coal-To-Liquids Players?


When we wrote about "coal to liquids" technology in preceeding years it all seemed so hypothetical. Now that the US Defense Department has shown an interest, serious planning and financing could be on the way. Reflecting this turn of events, we recently saw an advert for a coming conference In New York City, USA called the "Coal-To-Liquids Finance & Development Summit." Featured speakers listed in the promo are William C. "Bill" Anderson, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment and Logistics, and Montana's Governor, Brian Schweitzer. "The Summit will bring together leading project developers, coal companies, investors, lenders, technology and equipment suppliers, construction contractors and other key industry players to share their perspectives on what it will take to successfully develop and finance a new fleet of CTL projects." For a list of the other "players" shown on the promo, look below the fold.
