Clean coal "not viable for 20 years"

The Australian Government's own Carbon Capture & Storage Institute says that 'clean coal' power generation will not be viable commercially until 2030.

"A viable business case for commercial scale, integrated projects has not been established at this time for coal-fired power generation and other large CO2-emitting industries" says a report released by the institute last week.

So where does this leave Ambre Energy's so-called Felton 'Clean Coal' Project? Back to the drawing board for a name change perhaps. How about the 'Felton Environmental Destruction Project'?
