World’s largest carbon capture and storage project underway
GOLDFIELD — As a producer of clean, renewable energy, Corn, LP is partnering with Summit Carbon Solutions to make a clean energy source even more environmentally friendly,
The partnership, announced Thursday, will allow 200,000 tons of carbon dioxide to be captured, transported and deposited deep underground through Summit Carbon Solutions’ transportation and storage platform annually.
