On July 13, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) singed Senate Bill 1533, so-called clean coal legislation, which will permit construction of a $3 billion coal gasification facility on a brownfield site in Chicago. The project will be Illinois' first large-scale coal-to-natural gas production facility and will be on a 140-acre former LTV Steel site on the city's South Side. The facility is required to capture and store 85 percent of its carbon dioxide emissions.
