Emerson Process Management Joins Secure Energy, Inc. to Help Build New Coal Gasification Plant

Emerson Process Management has formed a strategic relationship with Secure Energy, Inc. to help build an $800 million alternative energy plant in Decatur, IL, the first coal gasification-to-synthetic natural gas plant to be constructed in the United States in two decades.

According to this strategic relationship, Emerson will serve as the main automation contractor responsible for managing and digitally automating the Secure Energy plant that will convert 1.4 million tons/year of Illinois coal into 21 billion cubic feet of pipeline quality natural gas. The modular facility is a template for four additional clean coal plants that Secure Energy intends to construct in other parts of the United States. Emerson will establish automation and process control protocols that can be modified as necessary to create plants that are coal-to-diesel, coal-to-gasoline, coal-to-fertilizer or other clean coal processes.
