American Carbon Alliance Statement on the Future of Navigator
URBANDALE, Iowa (Oct. 20, 2023) – Tom Buis, CEO of the American Carbon Alliance (ACA) issued the following statement in regard to the news of Navigator CO2 ceasing their pipeline project:
“The decision by Navigator CO2 to cease their carbon capture pipeline project is incredibly disappointing. We know that carbon capture is the future for farmers, rural communities, and our country.
“Just as bioethanol doubled farm income in the last two decades, carbon capture projects are the next step in bringing even more value to farmers nationwide. These projects will create higher corn and land values and bolster our nation’s energy security.”
“The American Carbon Alliance will continue to stand arm-in-arm with the commodity groups, industry leaders, and American farmers to help transform the ag and energy economy through carbon capture technology. This is an opportunity of a lifetime, and we cannot afford to let it slip away.”
The American Carbon Alliance (ACA) is formed to be one unified voice for carbon capture pipelines, ethanol producers, landowners, farmers, construction trade workers and citizens that embrace this new energy future for America. Working together, this alliance will strengthen America’s agricultural economy, ensure a future marketplace for American produced liquid fuel and improve the environment for all.
