Carbon Engineering Initiative

The Carbon Engineering Initiative (CEI) focuses on supporting existing markets and creating new markets for Wyoming coal. It primarily seeks to develop original patentable intellectual property to process and make value added products that can be deployed as standalone solutions or used to augment technology developed by others.

A second initiative is to identify potentially commercially viable clean-coal solutions in the market, support their further development to operate with Wyoming coal, and encourage transfer of these technologies to sites in Wyoming.

Mission

The overall mission of the Carbon Engineering Initiative (CEI) is to develop technologies that have potential to benefit Wyoming coal. To accomplish this mission CEI focuses in two areas.

  • Sustaining demand for coal as an energy fuel by developing and supporting technologies that permit clean high efficiency combustion with integrated CO2 capture that are technically and economically viable and fully compliant.
  • Growing the demand for coal as a feedstock that can be converted into chemical and high-performance engineered products that have greater value than that of the Btu component of the coal itself.
