Why Central Appalachia
Mountainous terrain avoids
permitting issues in more
densely populated areas.
Approximately 150 million tons
of coal are mined by mines
within 150 miles of our sites
Still, over 10% or 15 million
tons are gobbed due to high
ash because of difficulty
siteing prep-plants

The Magic of Syngas
The word syngas is derived from “synthesis gas”, that is gas used to produce
something through chemical synthesis.
Syngas is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide.
