Integrated Test Center

The Integrated Test Center is located next to the Dry Fork Station power plant north of Gillette. The research pads, basically flat red gravel, have access to flue gas from the plant through a pipeline the runs just above ground level. In this photo, a small garage is located on one of the test bays last summer. The CarbonBuilt project used carbon dioxide emissions from the plant to make more than 10,000 concrete building blocks as part of proving their technology to capture and reuse CO2 on a large scale.

Less than two weeks removed from announcing the winners of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPrize, the Integrated Test Center is at the center of another large, high-profile carbon capture project.

Gov. Mark Gordon announced Friday afternoon that the ITC, attached to the Dry Fork Station coal-fired power plant about 10 miles north of Gillette, will host one of two large U.S. Department of Energy CO2 capture research projects.
