Coal-to-gas plant receives final environmental permit

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management issued a final environmental permit for the construction of the Rockport, Ind. coal-to-gas plant on June 27. Now the plant must achieve a contract with the state of Indiana to sell synthetic natural gas, according to The Evansville Courier & Press. Indiana Gasification, LLC is planning the coal gasification plant, which is expected to cost $2.8 billion.

The environmental permit was granted after a review from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and approves the plant’s emission control plans.

Construction of the coal-to-gas plant includes plans to construct a pipeline longer than 400 miles to carry carbon dioxide to oil fields.
