Virtual Meeting Tonight for North Iowa Rural Landowners to Learn About Carbon Pipeline

Landowners who want to learn more about the possible construction of a carbon pipeline across sections of north Iowa can do so virtually tonight.

Summit Carbon Solutions is proposing to build the “Midwest Carbon Express” pipeline to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from ethanol plants and other CO2 producing industries in Iowa and four other midwest states. The gas would then be compressed into liquid form and transported via buried pipelines to an underground storage facility in North Dakota

The eastern end of the pipeline’s projected path would start at the Homeland Energy Solutions plant between New Hampton and Lawler in Chickasaw County. It would also go through Floyd County, Cerro Gordo County and Franklin County, where an informational meeting is set for Wednesday at 5 p.m. in Maynes Grove Lodge in Hampton.  

For those unable to attend or for those seeking more information, there will be a virtual meeting for anyone interested in the project via Webex Tuesday, October 12th at 5:30 pm.

The Iowa Utilities Board is conducting the public hearings before they can consider granting a permit for the pipeline to be built. Comments at the hearings are not part of the public record. Landowners who want to have their input made official must do so through the IUB website.
