New Coalition Promotes Carbon Capture as a Renewable Fuel Source
“You know, it's about three things create higher corn and land values with farmers. And you know, the bio-ethanol growth doubled farm income the past two decades. Well, carbon capture is the best new brightest spot to do that again, and you know, the carbon capture projects are a really the first bet if you want to use a baseball analogy, because everyone's looking to capture carbon or reduce carbon.”
He says the easiest carbon to capture is from ethanol plants.
Ninety-nine-point-five percent of what goes up that smokestack is carbon. The other half percent is moisture, so you don't need to separate. It's not an extensive process, to process it and compress it and be able to transport it through pipelines to geological formations in areas that you can pump it into the ground and stage forever.”
Buis says that there are three major pipelines that are in construction that will store the liquid fuel, which he says is a great alternative to electric vehicles.
