The test center is funded with $15 million in startup costs provided by the Wyoming State Legislature and financial contributions and partnerships from the utility and industries. Wyoming’s aim, which it achieved last year, was to build the largest carbon capture research facility in the country and foster the growth of a constrained industry that could help coal survive in a carbon sensitive world.
