Department of Energy withholding records on Two Elk carbon capture study

The U.S. Department of Energy is withholding records related to the carbon capture project at the Two Elk power plant in Wyoming because of a pending legal investigation, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The report states the study received nearly $10 million in economic stimulus grants and was stopped more than a year ago by Two Elk developer North American Power Group, based in Colorado.
