Economic Benefits: Mississippi Clean Energy will create both construction and permanent jobs in Mississippi. It will be a domestic customer for Gulf Coast refineries producing petcoke and energy providers.
Energy Benefits: Mississippi Clean Energy will be a low-cost producer of all its products. The CO2 captured will be shipped by pipeline, then used in enhanced oil recovery operations in the Mississippi region.
Environmental Benefits: Mississippi Clean Energy will use petcoke, an energy-rich byproduct from refining crude oil that is often exported and burned without controls. Our gasification technology will allow us to extract the energy from petcoke while avoiding 90 percent of most emissions.
