Statement on the U.S. Department of Energy Selection of the First Clean Coal Projects in the United States
"The Department of Energy's grant is an important step in bringing Summit Energy's Odessa plant into operation. This action, along with the legislation passed in Texas that so many people in Odessa and Austin worked hard to enact, brings the Permian Basin closer to establishing itself as the world's leader in clean coal technology."
