Large-scale CCS project will sequester CO2 from ethanol plants

Summit Agricultural Group and Green Plains Inc. on Feb. 18 announced the launch of a large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in the Midwest that will lower the carbon footprint of biorefineries and other carbon dioxide emissions sources.

As part of that effort, Summit Agricultural Group has launched Summit Carbon Solutions, a new business platform that will develop the CCS project. When fully developed, Summit Carbon Solutions said it will have an infrastructure network capable of capturing and permanently storing more than 10 million tons of carbon dioxide annually, the equivalent of taking 2 million cars off the road per year.
