Energy Center - CCTR

Our Purpose

CCTR, an Indiana State Agency, was created by the Indiana State Legislature in 2004 and is governed by I.C. 21-47-4. The Center reports to the Lt. Governor of the State of Indiana. The legislation that created CCTR, P.L.2-2007, SEC.288, places the Center at Purdue University, West Lafayette.

The legislated objective of the CCTR is to promote the use of Indiana's coal reserves in an economically and environmentally sound manner. To achieve this, the CCTR concentrates on the development and implementation of strategic appropriate clean coal technologies through funding scoping studies, industrial and commercial application projects, long-term development projects, technology designs and demonstration projects, coal research seminars and forums, and educational materials.

Senate Enrolled Act No. 29 legally established the CCTR at Purdue and provides the full statement of its terms of reference. Click here to read SB29.
