Technologies and Solutions to Improve Coal-Fired Power Generation

Every year 1.1 billion tons of coal are burned in the US alone, with 90% of that being used for electricity generation. Thermo Fisher Scientific is a leading industry partner in the effort to make this process more efficient, reliable, sustainable, and safer. We offer advanced technologies and solutions to optimize the entire process of taking coal from the mine to the boiler and then on to deliver power generation. Our solutions are provided across the process and include precision materials measurement and coal quality analysis, helping to ensure personnel and plant safety, and meeting emissions regulations.


Globally, coal-fired power plants face increasing demands for cost saving, process optimization, health and safety concerns, and environmental regulations. Our portfolio of products and services addresses these demands and helps enable our customers to operate more efficiently, safely, and more profitably.
