High-efficiency, low emission (HELE) technology enables coal-fired power stations to operate at higher temperatures and pressures, delivering electricity more efficiently and reducing emissions by up to 40%HELE is already making a difference at 4 power stations in Queensland. 

 

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a proven, safe technology used around the world. HELE coal-fired power stations integrated with 
CCS can reduce emissions by up to 90%.
