AES facility near Tulsa, Okla. before it was disassembled to be relocated to the Fort Union Industrial Park northeast of Gillette, Wyoming.


More than a year after announcing their intentions to move to the Fort Union Industrial Site northeast of Gillette, Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. announced Oct. 9 that the assembly of their test facility has begun at the new location.

The test facility was originally located at the Shady Point power plant in Oklahoma.

“We are very pleased to announce the start of the assembly process for what we’re calling our second generation client test facility,” Chief Operating Officer Aiden Neary said in a press release. “This is a milestone event in our progress and is the result of over 12 months of process enhancement analysis and benefaction optimization. The components and improvements in the coal benefaction process and byproduct extraction engineered into our process represent first of a kind, game-changing advancements that we believe will reverberate throughout the entire global coal industry.”

The second generation facility will incorporate features and designs to improve the coal benefaction process that have come about through collaboration among the company’s engineers and the University of Wyoming’s School of Energy Resources.

Benefaction is defined as any process that improves the economic value of a natural resource.

In the coming months, the company plans to demonstrate their technology to potential customers and test international coal, according to the release.
