Barry Amundson of the Grand Forks Herald writes that an Iowa-based agribusiness will construct a $2 billion pipeline network to carry liquified carbon dioxide to underground storage in North Dakota.
- The pipeline, which will service 20 ethanol plants, will sequester an estimated 10 million tons of carbon dioxide per year which is equivalent to removing 2 million cars from the road.
- The construction of the pipeline will create an estimated 8,000-10,000 jobs.
- The efforts of these ethanol plants show that the free market and agriculture are ready to meaningfully reduce emissions.
