The National Carbon Capture Conference and Expo taking place this week in Des Moines, Iowa, has faced disruptions from protesters.
Some 100 people marched through the streets of the city to demonstrate their opposition against the event and, more particularly, against the proposed carbon capture pipelines.
Three companies have proposed carbon pipeline projects that are set to pass through Iowa: Navigator CO2, Wolf Carbon Solutions and Summit Carbon Solutions.
And speakers from all three companies are present at the National Carbon Capture Conference in Iowa.
One of the main aim of the protesters, organized by climate action group Buffalo Rebellion, was to condemn the carbon pipeline projects as a ‘false climate solution.’
