North Dakota ethanol plant seeks to capture emissions underground

August 15, 2021 |

In North Dakota, the Bismark Tribune reports that Red Trail Energy ethanol plant representatives appeared before state regulators seeking a permit to store carbon dioxide captured from the facility underground, the first hearing of its kind to take place in North Dakota as the state’s energy industry looks to lower GHG emissions.

The Bismark Tribune said, “The effort at Red Trail Energy could be the first project to come to fruition in North Dakota that both captures carbon emissions from a facility and injects them underground within the state. A number of similar projects have been proposed within North Dakota’s coal and ethanol industries in recent years, and they are in various stages of development.”
