For now, officials with RES Coal LLC tell WJAC-TV ( http://bit.ly/POsGdm) that the plant in Boggs Township, Clearfield County, has a handful of workers. The plant is located about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, along Route 153.
The plant will clean about 3,000 tons of raw coal each day using water drawn from Clearfield Creek.
The cleaner burning coal will be sold domestically and overseas. Officials with Robindale Energy Services say cleaning the coal will reduce its ash and sulfur output by about half.
