Environmental groups and researchers remain skeptical about ADM CCS project

November 23, 2017 |

In Illinois, environmental groups and researchers remain skeptical at best about the possibilities of success at ADM’s carbon capture and storage projects co-located at its ethanol plant in Decatur that was expanded earlier this year after a successful pilot project. The scaled up project can inject up to 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year about a mile underground, in a space that could potentially hold 109 billion tons of CO2. But even though the project has scaled up, it’s still seen as a glorified R&D project whose long-term economic and environmental viability are still in doubt.
