Coal Research Facility’s Completion Date Pushed Back 3 Years
GILLETTE, WY. (AP) — A facility that plans to allow companies to build pilot plants to test coal conversion technologies has been pushed back three years.
The Gillette News Record reports officials have requested for the completion deadline of the Advanced Carbon Products Innovation Center planned for a site near Gillette to be moved to June 2022.
The Wyoming Business Council had awarded a $1.5 million grant for the project, stipulating it had to be completed by June 2019.
Phil Christopherson, CEO of Energy Capital Economic Development, says that “little things” are holding up the project, such as finalizing the subdivision site.
Christopherson says Energy Capital is not in danger of losing the grant funding.
