Documents obtained under access to information laws as part of a META investigation reveal how EU money from the European Commission’s ‘Research Fund for coal and steel is being used to pay the wages of staff at Euracoal, the European coal industry’s lobbying group in Brussels. 

The ‘CoalTech2051’ project, which started in July 2018 and does not involve any new research, aims instead to create “a professional network for the exchange of knowledge and experience on coal-related research and development: a European Network of Clean coal Technologists” and cooperate with groups from outside in the EU including India, China and Indonesia.
