The Great Lakes Energy Research Park (GLERP) is a multi-billion-dollar development centered around a "polygeneration" power plant facility to be built on and around the former Total Refinery site in Alma, Michigan.

The park is designed to include a Research and Development Center for modeling new clean coal, renewable, and alternative energy production methods in a university setting. With close proximity to most major Michigan universities, the Great Lakes Energy & Research Park will likely draw chemical and environmental researchers from around the world.

The "super" clean-coal integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) module will:

bullet Capture harmful air contaminants, including mercury, sulfur dioxide (SO2), and carbon dioxide (CO2), and

bullet Recover up to 1 billion barrells of "stranded oil" from the Michigan Basin

bullet Provide excess steam for co-locating alternative energy production

bullet Generate power for the electricity grid

Utilizing ConocoPhillips' eGasĀ® technology, the GLERP will blend the latest advancements in energy production into one, symbiotic system, creating tremendous amounts of energy and economic opportunity throughout Michigan.
