The University of Wyoming said on April 30 that the U.S. Department of Energy will provide about $3 million in funding “for research focused on expanding and transforming the use of coal and coal-based resources to produce coal-based products, using carbon ore, rare earth elements (REE) and critical minerals (CM).”
“Two separate projects submitted by UW’s School of Energy Resources (SER) Center for Economic Geology Research (CEGR) were selected by the DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and announced this week,” UW said. “The funds will cover research in the Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming and Montana and the Greater Green River and Wind River basins (GGRB-WRB) of Wyoming and Colorado.”
Overall, the DOE selected 13 projects across the U.S. which will receive a total of $19 million in funding.
