{{#badges: CoalSwarm}} This project is listed as the CME International Hanging Rock project in the NETL database. This was originally planned to be a natural gas plant,[1] but it was switched to an IGCC coal plant after increases in the price of natural gas.[2] CME applied for an Ohio air permit in March 2005.[2]

No developments have been made in the project since then, and as of Dec. 2007 the project appears to be abandoned.
