Researchers in Alberta and Texas say they plan to work together on scientific ideas that would cut energy industry pollution.

Some of the projects include developing technologies to reduce coal emissions, treat toxic tailings ponds and improve the efficiency of solar cells.

Premier Ed Stelmach says the agreement involves Alberta’s Advanced Education Department and Rice University, which is located in Houston.

The research will focus on using nanotechology — the manipulation of matter the size of atoms and molecules.

The province and the university are also working on safety guidelines for people who work in the nanotechnology field.
