Richardton ethanol plant moves forward with carbon capture project

 Apr 15 2019
A project to capture carbon dioxide from a western North Dakota ethanol plant continues to advance as researchers work to better understand the geology below the facility.

Red Trail Energy in Richardton proposes to capture carbon dioxide rather than emit it into the atmosphere and inject it deep underground, reducing the carbon footprint of the ethanol plant to meet West Coast fuel standards.

The company recently completed a geophysical survey of eight square miles around the plant.
