Texas-based Navigator CO2 Ventures has made another step toward starting work on its proposed carbon pipeline in South Dakota. The company has filed for a permit for the construction of its carbon pipeline network in the state.
The large-scale carbon capture project involves ethanol plants in five Midwest states, including Nebraska, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota.
And, once operational, the carbon capture pipeline system known as Heartland Greenway is expected to transport 15 million metric tons of captured CO2 to permanent storage sites per year.
Public hearings on the Navigator CO2 project in South Dakota have been scheduled for November, and the permit filing is on the Public Utilities Commission’s agenda for its meeting next week, on October 11.
