What is the company building?
Ramaco is proposing to construct a carbon products research campus (labs and offices) and light manufacturing on land it owns in the Acme area, just north of Sheridan. Click here for more info.
How will it benefit the community?
These facilities will put Sheridan County at the forefront of a promising new field of advanced manufacturing and research, in which carbon from coal is used to build products such as medical devices, airplane parts, and even shoes. The project plans to provide up to 40 good-paying jobs in the initial five years. We hope this will spark more quality job growth in the area, giving young people more opportunities to work and raise their families here.
Update – March 6, 2018Sheridan County commissioners commissioners vote to approve the rezone of Ramaco Carbon’s property, allowing iPark and iCam projects to move forward.
Who supports the project?
A large and diverse group of individuals, businesses, and community leaders strong support for Ramaco’s project. To read letters and quotes from them, and more information on our community outreach, please click here.
How will the project impact recreation in the area?
Ramaco’s project will not change any existing access or public land uses in the Acme area. In fact, our proposal is to enhance recreation use of the area. This includes development of a river access picnic spot for kayakers and other Tongue River users to enjoy.
All existing walk-in access will be unaffected by the rezoning and Ramaco’s facility. Agreements with the Game and Fish Department will remain unchanged. Click here for more info.
Will the project affect the Tongue River or groundwater in any way?
No, there will be no impact to the water quality along the Tongue River as a result of Ramaco Carbon’s facility. The buildings will be located hundreds of feet from the river, and will include an enhanced green space serving as a buffer. No materials from the plant will make it into the river or groundwater.
In what ways is this project environmentally friendly?
Not only will the facility be built to the highest environmental standards, but the research and manufacturing conducted at the facility will create uses for coal beyond burning it, a key priority for the larger environmental community.
