Whitehaven Coal CEO Paul Flynn has welcomed comments made by Labor MP Meryl Swanson in support of coal-fired power generation using low-emissions technology. Swanson recently toured high energy, low emissions power stations in Japan as part of a bipartisan delegation. Flynn says Australia should consider the construction of such power stations, noting that Japan accounts for about 60 per cent of Whitehaven’s thermal coal exports. However, Labor’s energy spokesman Mark Butler says HELE power stations are expensive to build and they produce more carbon emissions that gas-fired power stations.
