REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Development Services Agency respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital funds in the amount of $250,000 from fund 7046, line item C19505 (Coal Research and Development) to the University of Cincinnati, located in the city of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, in FY18 for the Ohio Coal Demonstration and Pilot Program.  
  The Ohio Coal Research and Development Program was created in 1985 pursuant to Section VIII.15 of the Ohio Constitution. The program provides funding for research at educational institutions (Ohio Coal Research Consortium) and for pilot and demonstration projects (Ohio Coal Demonstration and Pilot Program) at non-profit and for-profit businesses and scientific institutions. Proposals must focus on maximizing the use of Ohio coal in a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly manner.

Projects were solicited through a competitive RFP and scored by independent third-party evaluators.

This Demonstration and Pilot project was conditionally recommended for approval by the Ohio Coal Development Technical Advisory Committee at its February 17, 2017 meeting and subsequently approved by the Development Services Agency Director. The condition placed on this project by the Technical Advisory Committee is to release $50,000 to the University, then invite them back to the Committee to review the results before potentially releasing the additional $200,000.

See attachment for additional details.
