Wyoming plans coal to natural gas conversion

CHEYENNE, Wyo.

Construction of a $100 million research plant to refine and improve technology on turning coal into clean-burning natural gas will start next year with the goal of having the plant up and running by late 2012, officials said.

Officials from the University of Wyoming and General Electric Co. say the plant will research turning coal into natural gas and other products through a low emission process.

Wyoming is America’s leading coal producing state and finding cleaner ways to turn coal into electricity is important for its economy, given the concern over climate change. Coal-fired power plants emit huge amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. The state has invested US$50 million into the plant.
