Iowa has three carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline proposals. They are centered around Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The lines would carry captured carbon dioxide from ethanol plants. CCS is very complicated but when you boil it down, the basic premise is that it captures the carbon dioxide and stores it underground (CCS) or it captures the carbon dioxide and uses it for industrial purposes, Carbon Capture Utilitization and Storage (CCUS).
Summit, Navigator, and Wolf pipelines claim that they are going to permanently store the CO2 underground.
The three pipelines in Iowa are being offered as false climate solutions. We already know the solutions to our climate crisis - we must end our dependence on fossil fuels and invest in solar, wind, battery storage, conservation and efficiency!
