Summit Reaches 92% of Voluntary Carbon Pipeline Easements in Chickasaw County
The company proposing to build a carbon capture pipeline in Chickasaw County says they continue to increase the number of voluntary easement agreements with landowners in the county.
Summit Carbon Solutions Ben Fuller provided a project update through the end of February to the Board of Supervisors Monday.
Even though construction has not been approved by the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB), Fuller says the economic impact of Summit’s Midwest Carbon Express pipeline is already being felt in Chickasaw County.
Fuller added that, with a decision on their IUB permit not expected until this fall, construction of the carbon capture underground pipeline wouldn’t begin until Spring 2024.
Summit’s plan is to feature the Homeland Energy Solutions ethanol plant between Lawler and New Hampton for its easternmost starting point. It would then go west through Chickasaw, Floyd and Cerro Gordo counties among others.
