Update on Site Selection for Proposed High Plains Gasification-Advanced Technology Center

March 25, 2009 — Evaluation of three sites identified for further review for the proposed High Plains Gasification-Advanced Technology Center will continue into April.

Initial site visits to locations in Campbell, Goshen and Laramie counties were held during the first week of March. Thorough investigations of the sites are under way, and an announcement of a final site will be made once all investigations are complete.

The High Plains Gasification-Advanced Technology Center is being developed jointly by GE Energy and the University of Wyoming. The agreement signed in October outlines the framework for the joint development, design, construction and operation of the facility.
The university will own the facility and be responsible for its operation.

The proposed center would consist of a small-scale gasification system that would allow UW and GE Energy researchers to develop and validate advanced coal gasification technology solutions for Powder River Basin and other Wyoming coals. The plant is expected to allow engineers to gain experience in advanced coal gasification processes, and will provide students an opportunity to learn about coal gasification.
