A proposed 400 MW, $2.2 billion clean coal plant in West Texas received an air permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Summit Power Group's project is designed to use integrated gasification combined cycle technology technology and is expected to capture up to 90 percent of carbon dioxide emissions.

The plant is to be built on 600 acres 15 miles southwest of Odessa. Construction is to begin in the second half of 2011 and operations should start in late 2014.

The project received a $350 million award, including funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, from the Department of Energy's Clean Coal Power Initiative (CCPI) – Round 3 to demonstrate the commercial integration of large-scale IGCC with CO2 capture and geologic storage.
