The process is underway that could lead to the construction of the first ever carbon dioxide pipeline in Iowa. Iowa Utilities Board spokesman, Don Tormey says Summit Carbon Solutions is considering the pipeline.
Summit Carbon Solutions is an affiliate of the Summit Agricultural Group owned by Bruce Rastetter of Alden. Tormey says the project would be classified as a hazardous liquid pipeline — and that is why it falls under the I-U-B’s jurisdiction.
The first step is to set up hearings in the counties that would be impacted.
He says landowners will get a notice of the upcoming hearings on the pipeline.
