The facility in Fort Union brings together features and designs from both CCTI and its partner, the University of Wyoming's School of Energy Research, who have been advancing the work together since 2017.
The initial testing of its process for coal beneficiation and coal byproducts extraction, which was successful, was conducted at the Shady Point power plant in Oklahoma.
"We are very pleased to announce the start of the assembly process," CCTI COO Aiden Neary said.
"This is a milestone event in our progress and is the result of over 12 months of process enhancement analysis and beneficiation optimisation. The components and improvements in the coal beneficiation process and byproduct extraction engineered into our process represent first of a kind, game-changing advancements that we believe will reverberate throughout the entire global coal industry."
Looking forward, the two will be preparing to demonstrate the technology for potential clients and will also be testing internationally sourced coal.
The company told MM last year that its goal was to turn a 30% moisture coal extracted anywhere to 10%, and simultaneously increase its BTU by 20%.
CCTI noted that University of Wyoming's School of Energy Research was one of the leading research institutions in energy technology, particularly in the development of coal beneficiation and byproduct extraction, worldwide.
