Wyoming ITC hits funding milestone

With large project announcements in 2020 and 2021 and construction slated to begin onsite for multiple projects in 2022, the Wyoming Integrated Test Center (ITC) has surpassed $100 million in research and development funding to tenants to advance carbon capture and carbon utilization research in Wyoming.

The ITC is located at Basin Electric's Dry Fork Station, a coal-based power plant located near Gillette, Wyoming. The plant processes sub-bituminous coal from the Western Fuels’ Dry Fork Mine. The ITC provides space for researchers to test, in a real-life setting, carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) technologies.

"The goal of the ITC was always to help scale up CCUS technologies to commercialization," said Jason Begger, ITC's managing director. "We have had tenants successfully complete testing at different scales and have more lined up to test onsite over the next 18 months. This level of investment and testing shows the continued importance and dedication to finding solutions to post-combustion CO2 emissions."

The ITC allows tenants to research technologies from the bench scale up to the demonstration scale.
