Morgantown, W.Va. — NRCCE Director quoted in a USA Today story about converting coal to liquid fuels that appears as a sidebar to “Coal king Peabody cleans up” by reporter Paul Davidson.

“…Coal-to-liquid fuel would sell today for about $70 a barrel, says Richard Bajura, head of the National Research Center for Coal and Energy at West Virginia University. ‘With oil at $120 a barrel, it would seem like a no-brainer,’ he says.”
