Coal out, natural gas facility in

LIBSON — “The Baard Energy project is being resurrected, with natural gas replacing coal as the energy source used to produce synthetic diesel and jet fuel.

The Natural Resources Defense Council, one of the environmental groups fighting construction of Baard’s Ohio River Clean Fuels plant, announced Friday the coal-based project as originally constituted has been scrapped as part of an agreement reached with the groups.

In exchange for switching from coal to natural gas, the NRDC and Sierra Club agreed to drop its appeals challenging the permits issued for the Baard project by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.”
