a contract for
reimbursement of expenses
The ERORA Group LLC, Louisville, KY,
an estimated $2,500,000.
The University will issue a Purchase Order to reimburse expenses for the "Taylorville Energy Center" proposed by the ERORA Group, LLC, which will develop a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) package for an Illinois coal gasification project that will be located Northwest of Taylorville in Christian County, Illinois. The project meets the selection criteria of the Clean Coal Review Board program and includes substantial cost sharing from other funding sources, including the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The advanced technology selected for support represents a one-of-a-kind project that is unique in terms of the project location (which has been the subject of substantial environmental modeling and permitting activity by ERORA Group) and the suite of products that will be produced from locally mined Illinois coal.
