Clean Coal Technologies Inc., a company working on a process to produce cleaner-burning coal, is set to begin operating its new test plant in northeast Wyoming by next summer, to be located near a commercial facility capable of processing 30 tons of coal an hour, the Associated Press reported Dec. 16, citing the Gillette News Record.
The test facility is scheduled to arrive from Tulsa, Okla., around the end of January. Clean Coal Technology will work to attain necessary permits from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality with the goal to have the test plant operational by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
The timeline for the commercial plant calls for the company to have its permitting done in six months and the plant built and online by the end of 2019, the report said, citing Robin Eves, CEO of Clean Coal Technologies.
The company, in October, agreed to work with the University of Wyoming's School of Energy Resources to advance its coal-beneficiation technology.
