During the summer, the Red Trail Energy ethanol plant near Richardton, N.D., became the first facility in the state to commercially operate a carbon capture and storage facility. UND’s Energy & Environmental Research Center played an instrumental role in developing the project.
The biggest news of the open house was the approval of the storage facility permit by the North Dakota Industrial Commission on October 19, which brings the RTE CCS project one step closer to becoming the first of its kind in North Dakota.
The North Dakota Industrial Commission approved Red Trail Energy’s (RTE’s) storage facility permit at its October 19 meeting.
The virtual open house, an opportunity to hear updates about the Red Trail Energy CCS project will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, November 10, at 6:00 p.m. MT (7:00 p.m. CT).
The application submitted by RTE for a North Dakota Carbon Dioxide Storage Facility permit is the first of its kind in the state of North Dakota.
Science says “Go!” on a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Richardton. CCS addresses environmental concerns and strengthens the local economy by reducing carbon dioxide emissions which also increases the value of the ethanol.
Red Trail Energy hosted an open house event in Richardton, North Dakota. The event was attended by community members interested in a local carbon capture and storage (CCS) project.
With the support of the North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), RTE is investigating carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology as a way to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions associated with ethanol production.
