Liquid Coal: Can It Save Us?
I admit there is something strange about putting something stemming from such an unclean fuel source as coal into my car, but looking into the matter a little more I saw that this is more than just hype, it can be a great mechanism in moving the USA away from foreign oil influence.
Liquid Coal is made from coal which has been liquified through a gasification process. This process took years to develop and now there are coal gasification plants beginning to be built. The amazing thing about using coal to do this is that there is a lot of it. Not to mention Liquid Coal is a lot cleaner than other carbon based fuels.
So next time you think of coal, don't think about coal in its base form, rather think of it as a pure liquid, clean and efficient.
