Southern Indiana Coal Gasification Facility Create 1,000 Construction Jobs, 500 Permanent

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels signs a bill into law that will create 1,000 construction and 500 permanent jobs in southern Indiana.

The bill makes it possible to move forward with the construction of a coal gasification plant in Rockport.

According to the governor's office, the plant will operate with 99 percent fewer pollutants than a traditional coal plant.

Should national coal policy mandate the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2), the SNG plant is designed to capture 90 percent of its CO2 emissions.
