ADM announced this week the goal of reducing its carbon footprint through the use of a 350-mile pipeline to transport carbon dioxide out of its ethanol plants in Eastern Iowa and and into a carbon sequestration facility in Illinois. This marks the third carbon dioxide pipeline proposed for Iowa. ADM, the second-largest ethanol producer in the nation, said its facility in Decatur, IL has injected more than 3.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a mile-and-a-half underground.

The proposed pipeline would have the capacity for 12 million tonnes of liquefied gas per year and representatives says its pipeline would have spare capacity to serve other company looking to decarbonize across the Midwest and Ohio River valley. ADM’s proposal, along with the other two currently proposed pipelines from Texas-based Navigator and Iowa’s Summit Carbon Systems would need approval from the Iowa Utilities Board to proceed.
