Carbon Pipeline Approval Process In Early Stage

Statewide Iowa — A third company has announced a proposal to build a carbon capture pipeline across the state of Iowa as two other companies have started the process of seeking permits.

Iowa Utility Board spokesman, Don Tormey, says the first step is to hold public input meetings.

Tormey says the public hearings aren’t the only way you can give your input on the proposed pipelines.

Once the informational meetings are done the companies can move to the next step of the process.

If the companies decide to go ahead and file for a pipeline permit then the IUB takes over.

The final step would come after the public hearing.

Wolf Carbon Solutions and Archer-Daniels-Midland announced they are planning a carbon pipeline project running from eastern Iowa to central Illinois. They will have to go through the same process that Summit Carbon Solutions and Navigator CO2 Ventures are now going through.
