12 more biorefineries join Summit Carbon Solutions

May 2, 2021 |

In Iowa, 12 more biorefineries joined Summit Carbon Solutions, bringing the total to 30 facilities across Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska, further growing the world’s largest carbon capture and storage project, which will link dozens of carbon dioxide emission sources, primarily biorefineries, from across the Midwestern United States to permanent geologic storage sites in North Dakota.

Through this expansion, Summit Carbon Solutions’ committed CO2 volume will likely result in commitments exceeding the company’s original target of 10 million metric tons per year.

The new biorefinery additions will extend Summit Carbon Solutions’ network of CO2 sources deeper into Iowa and Minnesota and will broaden its reach with its first commitments from CO2 sources in Nebraska.  The expansion into Nebraska will be supported by Green Plains, Husker Ag, and Louis Dreyfus Company, which will supply CO2 from their facilities, dramatically reducing the carbon footprint of their respective operations.
