NRECA has joined with members of a public-private partnership in Gillette, Wyoming, on an industrial-scale laboratory that will test innovative methods for removing and utilizing carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants. The Wyoming Integrated Test Center (ITC) will allow researchers to test the capture and utilization of carbon dioxide. The center will use flue gas from the Dry Fork Station, a 422-megawatt generation facility owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative. In addition to Basin Electric Power providing the power plant site, the state of Wyoming is contributing $15 million, Tri-State $5 million, and NRECA $1 million to the project. The $20 million COSIA NRG Carbon XPRIZE will be hosted at the center. The following resources provide more information on this effort: ​
