A Colorado-based carbon capture company has unveiled plans to build Nebraska’s first commercial carbon sequestration and storage project.
Carbon America CEO Brent Lewis says the project will capture, transport and store carbon from an ethanol plant in the western town of Bridgeport. “There happens to be just pretty good geology right around that plant. It made it practically and economically viable to sequester and capture CO2 right by the ethanol plant.”
On Tuesday, Carbon America announced an agreement with Bridgeport Ethanol LLC, and Lewis says the carbon will be stored underground near the plant in the Panhandle.
