ADM Deploys Carbon Capture and Sequestration Project at Illinois Ethanol Plant

On April 7, Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) announced that it had moved from demonstration to deployment of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) at its Decatur, Illinois ethanol plant.  Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) collects carbon dioxide that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere by industrial and power generating sources, and pumps it deep underground for long term storage. The Illinois Industrial Carbon Capture and Storage (ICCS) project will store over 1 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.
