The future of a synthetic fuel plant that would power fighters and cargo planes with processed coal will be announced this week.

The Air Force decided on Friday whether to move ahead with a plan to build a synthetic fuel plant at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont.

Due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and the inauguration, Air Force spokesman Gary Strasburg said the decision will not be released until Wednesday.

The proposal is part of the Air Forces Enhanced Use Lease program, which allows a private company to lease space on military bases in exchange for base infrastructure improvements.

The owners of the proposed plant at Malmstrom would pay the Air Force in fuel.
