The U.S. Department of Energy has dropped Christian and Douglas County from consideration for its Future Gen Project 2.0.
Mary Renner the Executive Director of the Christian County Economic Development Corporation says that the project would gasify coal.
Renner says that she believes Christian County was never a serious contender for the project.
Renner says that Christian County was an alternate site for the Future Gen 2.0 Project.
The Future Gen Project was introduced in 2003 by former President George W. Bush and has been continued by President Obama.
