Alaska Natural Resources-to-Liquids plant
Alaska Natural Resources-to-Liquids is an Anchorage-based firm planning to develop a 300 MW coal-to-liquids plant near the Beluga coal fields on the west side of Cook Inlet. This area is a watershed west of Anchorage. To convert coal and natural gas to liquid fuels, the plant would use the Fischer Tropsch chemical conversion process, which produces huge amounts of carbon dioxide. Alaska Natural plans to sequester a portion of the plant's CO2 emissions to recover oil from Cook Inlet oil fields.
As of November 2009, Alaska Natural Resoures-to-Liquids had not yet submitted an air permit application for the proposed plant.
