Riverview Energy plans to build $2.5B plant in southern Indiana


Riverview Energy is planning to build a $2.5 billion plant in southern Indiana to convert the region’s coal reserves into diesel fuel and other products, The Associated Press reported.

The plant, proposed for the Spencer County town of Dale, would employ about 225 workers and create about 2,000 temporary construction jobs in the community, which is about 40 miles northeast of Evansville, the AP reported.

The company filed a construction permit request with Indiana in late January. The plant would convert coal into diesel fuel and other products like Naphtha, which is used to produce products like plastics and gasoline.

The plant would plan to use 1.6 million tons of coal and produce 4.8 million barrels of clean diesel and 2.5 million barrels of Naphtha each year.
