Overcoming hurdles to decarbonize ethanol

The CEO of the American Carbon Alliance says a lack of new infrastructure could hold back decarbonization of the U.S. ethanol industry and limit market potential.

Tom Buis tells Brownfield carbon capture is a future for U.S. ethanol but delays in the permitting process and pushback on pipeline projects are problematic.

“If you don’t get those pipelines and the connection to those geological formations where you can store it forever, a big part of the ethanol industry won’t be able to participate,” he says.
