    The U.S. Energy Department is moving forward with phase two of central Illinois’ FutureGen clean-coal project. Energy secretary Steven Chu announced the agreement with FutureGen industrial alliance yesterday.

    The alliance is planning to refit a coal-powered plan in Meredosia with technology that removes carbon dioxide from coal and stores it underground. The project has $1 billion in federal funding.
