Clean Coal Technologies is a New York-based company with big plans for the Wyoming coal industry.
Clean Coal Technologies officers say they plan to build several plants here.
That could mean more jobs and a boost to Wyoming’s coal industry.
After establishing a test plant in Sheridan, company manager’s plan building two more plants in undisclosed locations around Wyoming.
But what is their plan?
Robin Eves says, “The answer is a more efficient use of coal and by producing a more efficient coal and our technology does that and by doing that you burn less coal and automatically reduces the carbon footprint. We believe that it will also reestablish the PBR coal as a major competitor in the coal market. Which we believe is the future of the coal market her in the United States.”
Eves says, Clean Coal Technologies patented technology to reduce chemical pollutants from coal such as sulfur by ninety percent.
But how does this technology work?
“Dehydration technologies extracts water from the coal, increases the BTU value but more importantly it stabilizes the coal. The coal then will not reabsorb water and will not self-combust and it is ash free. It’s a totally clean product to transport,” says Eves.
