Advanced Conversion Technologies Research
The Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program was created to stimulate research and development in the area of low-emissions and advanced coal technologies. Commercially successful deployment of these technologies is the ultimate goal of the program. The objectives of the program are:
- Enable and accelerate demonstration and early commercial deployment of technologies that have the potential to enhance and improve the use of sub-bituminous coal at high altitudes, specifically in Wyoming.
- Generate and test new ideas for significant improvement and cost reductions in next-generation low-emissions and advanced coal technologies.
- Support collaborative research and development in accomplishing the above objectives.
As of July 1, 2012, the Clean Coal Task Force and the Clean Coal Technology Research Account was renamed the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) and the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Account, respectively. This change is in accordance with original Senate File 15/Senate Enrolled Act 3 enacted by the Sixty-first Legislature of the State of Wyoming in the 2012 budget session. It is intended to broaden the scope of the Clean Coal/Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force from coal conversion to other resource to value-added products conversion technologies.

Project awards for the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program are listed according to the year in which they were awarded.
All projects funded through the Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program are required to submit both a final executive summary report and a final technical report to the ACTTF via SER upon completion of their research. Because final technical reports contain proprietary and confidential information, they are not available to the public. Final executive summary reports can be found below:
