About Coal & Environment Research Laboratory

Exterior Coal & Environment Research Laboratory

Coal & Environment Research Laboratory is Japan's only comprehensive research institute specializing in coal, which strives to realize environmentally harmonious coal operations and address various technical issues faced by our customers.
Coal plays an important role as one of the major primary energies. On the other hand, the use of coal generates CO2, so efforts are required to reduce emissions.
Coal & Environment Research Laboratory is working on the development of technical services that meet customer needs and technologies for clean coal usage. We are actively promoting development.
