What is the ITC?

As part of the Wyoming Energy Summit. There will be an optional tour to the ITC on May 7.
The ITC was officially dedicated in May of 2018. The ITC provides space for researchers to test Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) technologies using 20 MW of actual coal based flue gas. Along with testing capture technologies, additional research will look at taking flue gas and turning it into a marketable commodity. The research at the ITC will lead to new opportunities in petrochemicals as well as other commercial uses of carbon dioxide. Research at the facility will help ensure the viability of the coal industry, which supports jobs, local and state economies and keeps electricity prices low for millions of people around the globe.

 
The ITC is one of a handful of such facilities around the world and only the second one in the United States. While many carbon capture technologies are being developed and studied in laboratory settings, the ITC is one of the few research and testing facilities at an operating coal-fired powered plant. Laboratories cannot mimic the real world conditions of a functioning coal-fired power plant. The ITC allows for real world testing at an active power plant and alleviates typical concerns over being able to transfer technology from a lab to a plant.

Tell me more about the Optional Tour

The optional tour will visit the Integrated Test Center (ITC). Everyone who purchases a ticket for the optional tour will meet at the Arbuckle Lodge at 2 p.m. We expect to return by 5 p.m.

As an added bonus, this option will include a stop at the new 10,200-foot-deep test well near the Dry Fork Station power plant being drilled as part of the Wyoming CarbonSAFE project.
