Red Trail Energy pursuing carbon capturing

Published: Feb 11 2019

Red Trail Energy, LLC, is planning to undertake carbon capturing and storage at its Richardton facility.

Dustin Willett, Red Trail chief operating officer, informed Stark County Commissioners about the new project at their Tuesday meeting.

"We're about to be filing for a permit to do a geological seismic survey out at the plant," he said. "It's in correlation with some of the future we have for Red Trail. We want to do carbon capture and storage at our facility."

The process captures waste carbon dioxide and prevents it from entering the atmosphere by directing it to an underground geological formation, such as an aquifer.
