Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (OTC:CCTC) is a late-stage start-up company that has introduced proprietary patented and patent pending technologies to convert raw coal into a cleaner, more efficient fuel source. Use of the company’s innovative process makes possible the upgrade of low-rank coals, including lignite, into premium fuels that are high in calorific content and low in pollutants. Clean Coal Technologies’ trademarked products, Pristine™ and Pristine-M™, are significantly more efficient, less polluting and more cost-effective than untreated coal. The company’s products offer solutions for coal users involved in power generation, steel, and coal-to-gas or coal-to-liquids projects.
The core investment thesis of Clean Coal Technologies is as an export technology. It dramatically increases BTU content while reducing shipping weight (and therefore decreasing energy used in transport).
