China innovating forward

MIT just published an artilce about China's efforts to take leadership in clean coal technology. The first paragraph of the article states that,

"China looks set to overtake the United States in the application of
technologies to clean up coal-fired power generation, if several proposed
projects come to fruition. GreenGen--a joint venture established by Chinese
utilities--has broken ground on China's first integrated gasification
combined cycle (IGCC) plant and signed agreements to build two more."

It will be interesting to watch how the new administration and the US responds.
