August 13, 2014 |

In Connecticut, Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT), a non-profit economic development organization based in East Hartford, Conn., was awarded a Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) to work on Phase II of a project that will determine the feasibility of implementing an alternative fuels facility in rural north-central Connecticut. USDA Rural Development provided $53,000 for CCAT under the Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) program for the second phase of the feasibility study in fiscal year 2014.

Phase I of the project, which was also funded under the RBEG program in fiscal year 2013, preliminarily established the feasibility of implementing an alternative fuels facility to be located in north-central Connecticut.  In Phase II, the project team will look at refining details regarding operational aspects of the facility.
