(Springfield)--Communities hoping to be the Futuregen Clean Coal project's carbon dioxide storage site will soon know if there hopes have been met. The Futuregen Alliance announced Friday it will announce selection on Monday. The Alliance is a group of coal companies and other firms working with the US Department of Energy on Futuregen.
Sites in contention are Christian, Douglas, Fayette, and Morgan Counties. The project was announced last year after the Energy Department scrapped plans to build an experimental coal plant in Mattoon. The Energy Department is covering most of the one point two billion dollar project.
