Freedom Energy Diesel LLC is proposing the construction of a $400 million coal-to-liquids plant in Morristown, Tennessee. [1] The company originally proposed to build the plant in Cumberland County, Tennessee. [2]

Little is known about the company. However, on May 27, 2011, the Industrial Development Board for Cumberland, Morgan and Roane counties will hold a special meeting to discuss donating 100 acres in the Plateau Partnership Park site near Interstate 40 and Westel Road to Freedom Energy Diesel. The company said the facility would use processes that will be 99.9 percent free of air pollution through coal-to-liquids technology - but did not provide details of how. Plateau Partnership Park board said it would proceed with the meeting now that it had received a letter of intent from Freedom Energy.[2]
