Marquis Energy to convert its industrial park into world’s first carbon-neutral industrial park

October 4, 2021 |

In Illinois, Marquis Incorporated announced a plan for the Marquis Industrial Park to be the world’s first carbon-neutral industrial park with on-site carbon injection. Last week Marquis began drilling its first 5,000-foot test well to determine the total capacity available for carbon sequestration in the Mt. Simon Sandstone on its site. The Marquis Family will begin immediate development of the first of two 600 ton per day blue hydrogen and blue ammonia facilities, as well as manufacturing for carbon neutral bio-based chemicals and plastics.

The Marquis Industrial Park in Hennepin, Illinois is a 2500-acre industrial site with multiple natural gas lines, access to the electrical transmission grid, year-round river barge loading, interstate highway, and Class 1 railroad. In addition to the blue hydrogen and blue ammonia project, the plan includes a state-of-the-art soybean crushing facility to produce bio-based feedstocks for the production of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuels.
