"This partnership will provide us with infrastructural support when necessary as we advance our first-of-a-kind technology at our Fort Union location,” Neary said. “The Innovation Center is a very unique initiative and reflects the continued support by Wyoming in advancing the use of Wyoming PRB coal through technology.”
Last month, Clean Coal announced the delivery of a rotary kiln at its Fort Union facility. The kiln will be used with the company’s patented coal dehydration technology to create stable, dust-free coal.
"With the arrival of our $1.3 million Rotary Kiln at our site last month this partnership will provide our ability to supply processed coal feedstock to other businesses in the Industrial park and enable us to share infrastructure as we move towards being fully operational at our new facility,” Neary said.
