MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., attended a coal technology symposium hosted by West Virginia University on Wednesday.

The symposium focused on finding viable paths forward for coal, which is projected to remain the United States' most reliable and affordable domestic energy source for the next few decades.

"The facts are there's more coal being used in the world today than ever and forecasts are even for more," Manchin said. "If we're going to do it, let's do it better."

In addition to presentation from different senators, leading experts from government, industry, academia and environmental groups presented information on current and future technology options for coal-based power.
