As part of a new campaign to promote coal-to-liquids technology on Capitol Hill, the National Mining Association has created a new coalition to help spread the word about CTL. During today's episode of OnPoint, John Ward, vice president of marketing and government affairs for Headwaters Inc., discusses the goals of this new coalition. He also comments on Sen. Jeff Bingaman's (D-N.M.) recent remarks about coal-to-liquids' place in U.S. energy policy. Ward responds to environmental concerns surrounding coal-to-liquids technology and urges lawmakers to help create incentives for the CTL industry in order to stimulate growth.
