The Department of Energy withdrew its support for the original FutureGen project, citing rising costs as the main reason They noted that IGCC, which was to be the process used to generate electricity in the FutureGen plant, was already in use at two sites in the US (the Wabash plant near Terre Haute, IN., and the Polk plant near Lakeland, FL). Therefore, DOE said, further experimentation with IGCC was an unnecessary expense and the funds for construction of the Futuregen plant could be better spent supporting development of carbon capture and geological sequestration at existing IGCC and other generating technologies scattered across the country. Should funds be redirected to support building the experimental Futuregen plant at the geologically tested and proven site near Mattoon, IL, or should the funds be directed, as proposed by DOE, toward carbon capture and geological sequestration at other sites where little testing of the suitability for geological sequestration has occurred.
