  • ND coal-drying plant passes first large-scale test – BusinessWeek

    Robert French, the chief executive officer of GTL Energy USA Ltd., said the plant near South Heart successfully removed 65 percent of the water from the low-quality lignite, allowing it to burn cleaner and produce more than 40 percent additional energy.
