ABSTRACT
The article reports that the FutureGen Alliance has revealed that it will choose from four sites in Illinois and Texas for the location of a $1 billion clean-burning, coal-powered prototype electric power plant. The nonprofit consortium has selected Odessa and Jewett in Texas, and Mattoon and Tuscola in Illinois, because of their local resources, geographical features, and the potential for storing gases produced by burning coal.
