of a coal gasification facility, including coal feeding equipment, designed
to convert locally available coal into a low sulfur gaseous fuel and to
manage all waste and byproduct streams.
The purchase, employment and transfer of such tangible personal property
as low sulfur dioxide emission coal fueled devices is not a purchase, use or sale
of tangible personal property.
