Ceremonial Groundbreaking Set for First U.S. Coal-to-Gas Plant

Developers say they're ready for a ceremonial groundbreaking at the Mingo County site of a proposed coal-to-gasoline plant.

TransGas Development Systems says it's scheduled the event for May 9 in Wharncliffe. The $4 billion Adams Fork Energy plant will produce 756,000 gallons of gasoline from coal each day. It would be the first of its type in the country.

Construction is expected to take four years and create 3,000 construction jobs.

TransGas has a state air quality permit and authority to issue bonds from the West Virginia Economic Development Authority.
