Invented and patented by Alex Fassbender, a U.S. chemical engineer, TIPS makes coal behave itself - by keeping it under extreme, constant pressure. It strips coal of virtually 100 per cent of pollutants. It emits nothing into the atmosphere. It captures coal's heavier-than-air greenhouse gas emissions essentially for free. It uses off-the-shelf turbines to produce electricity, reducing capital costs and delivering power at a bargain price. And it does all this in plants one-tenth the size of conventional coal-fired plants - now gargantuan structures that rival high-rise apartment buildings in scale.
Says Bruce Clements, the Canmet research scientist who has spent months evaluating the TIPS technology: "This is huge. This is a step change."
