DKRW Advanced Fuels has submitted updated materials to the state Industrial Siting Division regarding a proposed a coal-to-liquids conversion facility near Medicine Bow. Construction was slated to start this year, but in March the company pulled its construction schedule and socioeconomic impact report from its file with the Industrial Siting Division and the Division gave them until June 19th to submit updated materials.
The head of a Texas company that plans to build a plant to convert coal to gasoline in Carbon County says discussions are still ongoing with Idaho National Laboratory about reviewing the project.
Robert Kelly is chairman of DKRW Advanced Fuels. He says Monday that he expects the laboratory review will take about 30 days once an agreement is reached.
DKRW last year asked Wyoming to purchase up to $300 million in industrial development bonds to help finance the $2 billion project. The state Legislature would have to authorize any investment above $100 million.
