Plain Talk: Is carbon capture North Dakota's next big industry?
North Dakota may soon be the endpoint for a massive new carbon-gathering pipeline. A vice president of the company building the pipeline joins this episode of Plain Talk to answer questions about it.
North Dakota has industries that produce a lot of carbon.
But North Dakota's newest industry could be taking that carbon and putting it someplace where it can't harm the environment.
Wade Boeschans, a vice president with a company called Summit Carbon Solutions , joined this episode of Plain Talk to answer questions about one of the first, and biggest, projects of this burgeoning industry. The Midwest Carbon Express is a pipeline that will gather carbon emitted by ethanol plants across Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota, and bring them to a spot in North Dakota where it will be stored underground.
What are the challenges attendant to building such a project? Is it safe? Who will be responsible for all this stored carbon long-term? Wade answers those questions and more.
