SIU professor to serve on National Coal Council

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- An SIU professor and scholar in energy technology will soon offer advice on the future of coal in the country.

Rick Perry, the U.S Secretary of Energy, invited Tomas Wiltowski to serve on the National Coal Council. 

Wiltowski is a professor of mechanical engineering and energy processes and Director of the Advanced Coal and Energy Research center at SIU.  

He says serving on the council will allow him to offer his ideas on long term solutions in energy needs. 

"One opportunity is to speak about my concepts, my vision for coal. But also, what is very important from my standpoint, is to speak on behalf of SIU and the region," said Wiltowski. 

Wiltowski will remain at SIU. Those on the National Coal Council offer recommendations, but serve without compensation.
