Is clean coal really happening?

    Coal production typically yields mercury, arsenic, and sulfur. “Clean Coal” is the use of certain technologies to prevent or limit carbon and sulfur from entering the atmosphere via the exhaust of the power plant. However, there is still the matter of disposal of these waste products.

    As far as I know, the only “clean coal” plant operating is in Germany, and the carbon dioxide used in that plant is being liquified and then injected into the earth. Not exactly what I would call a “clean” energy source.
