Australia, China in clean coal talks

Australia and China have formed a joint body to investigate using clean coal technology as a way to minimise damage to the environment.

Prime Minister John Howard and his Chinese counterpart have met in the Phillipines to negotiate a free trade agreement, and to discuss the possibility of Australia increasing sales of uranium.

Another outcome of the talks has been the establishment of the Australia-China Joint Coordination Group on Clean Coal Technology.

The body will look at ways to lower greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power stations.
