Clean Coal Technologies Starts Building Pilot Plant in LeFlore County
By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
Clean Coal Technologies Inc. has entered into the construction phase of its pilot plant project in LeFlore County. The energy company uses patented technology to convert raw coal into cleaner-burning, more efficient fuel.
After executing a site agreement with a major coal-fired power plant, Clean Coal Technologies has purchased ancillary equipment, including a coal screening device and a propane generator to feed and power the pilot plant.
Robin Eves, president and CEO of Clean Coal Technologies, said in a statement: “The execution of this agreement is a major milestone in the commercialization of our unique processes. We have found an ideal site to commission and test the pilot plant scheduled to be delivered to the Oklahoma facility within the next six weeks.”
Science Applications International Corp. will carry out the plant’s construction, commissioning and testing. After adding certain front-end test equipment, which will be designed by Louisville, Kent.-based Carrier Vibrating Equipment, Clean Coal Technologies believes it will have a strong platform to rigorously test coal types from all over the world and generate informative data.
“The pilot plant represents an important step forward in the development of a viable coal upgrade process that enhances the sustainability of coal as a staple fuel for power generation anywhere in the world,” Eves commented. “The bottom line is that the technologies that will be introduced on the back of the Oklahoma test plant could have positive implications for boiler efficiencies and the cost of power generation, and will benefit the coal industry in general.”
