Atlas Carbon, UW collaborating on coal refinery project

GILLETTE (WNE) — Ground will break soon on a new coal refinery demonstration project north of Gillette.

The University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources, Atlas Carbon and Wood PLC will hold a groundbreaking ceremony in September to launch the project near Atlas Carbon.

The site will be developed and operated collaboratively by the three stakeholders, with the goal of showcasing and developing — at a pre-commercial scale — a sustainable coal refinery process, as well as product technologies using coal from the Powder River Basin.
