Economic Benefits: Indiana Gasification will produce 1,500 jobs and support the long-term health of the Indiana coal industry.
Energy Benefits: The project will secure Indiana as a clean coal technology leader for the country and will diversify the state's gas portfolio to reduce consumer's exposure to volatile, unpredictable natural gas market prices.
Environmental Benefits: Indiana Gasification will be the cleanest coal gasification plant ever permitted in the U.S.
Consumer Benefits: Consumers will save at least $100 million from SNG as part of its supply contract with the state.
Indiana Gasification is working to make a $2.8 billion clean energy investment in southern Indiana to construct a state-of-the-art coal gasification facility that will convert approximately 10,000 tons of coal per day into substitute natural gas (SNG) and liquefied CO2. The CO2 produced by the facility will be compressed and shipped to the Gulf Coast, where it will be injected into old oil wells and help produce as much as 20 million barrels of petroleum a year.
Indiana Gasification will achieve much lower emissions than those produced by traditional coal-fired plants.
