UK center breaking ground for energy facility

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky's Center for
Applied Energy Research is breaking ground this week for a new $5.7
million unit that will convert coal and biomass to liquid fuel.

UK says the unit will focus on state-of-the-art technology to
improve efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide from the process.

The facility will be open-access, and its findings will be
available to the scientific and industrial community.

UK says a primary objective of the research will be
environmental issues, especially how to manage and reduce carbon
dioxide emissions.

The groundbreaking is at 9:30 a.m. EST Tuesday at the Spindletop
Administration Building.
