DOE Seeks New Sites To Store FutureGen 2.0 Emissions

Text size: A A

The U.S. Energy Dept. now is seeking alternate locations for captured gas from its planned FutureGen 2.0 coal-fired powerplant project. DOE says it will still proceed with its flagship carbon capture and storage project despite lacking concrete plans on where it will store the carbon emissions. The $1-billion project’s partners were shaken on Aug. 11 when Mattoon, Ill., the long-planned FutureGen site, pulled out of the scheme. Town officials rejected DOE’s altered plans to retrofit a powerplant elsewhere in the state and instead store CO? emissions in a subterranean geological formation beneath Coles County.
