First CCS Projects Announced in Colorado & Arkansas

A high quality CO2 stream + local support + good project economics + entrepreneurs = CCUS success
Many of my Texas friends have never heard of Yuma, Colorado. It is a place that most will never visit.
I was born in Yuma county and my parents worked for a natgas operator with offices spread across northeast Colorado. We have roots that run deep in this part of the country and it is a great to see a carbon capture & storage project get developed.
Yuma county is mostly farmers and ranchers with some industry and oil & gas mixed in the economy. Only a couple thousand people live in each of the small towns of Eckley, Yuma, and Wray but there is an intense love for neighbors, land, and family heritage.
These farmers, ranchers, and investors banded together to build two of the first three ethanol plants in Colorado. CO2 from ethanol facilities is a high quality stream compared to other industrial processes, making it ideal for carbon capture.
This is a great step for industrial decarbonization and wonderful display of taking action to reduce emissions, partnering with local companies, and entrepreneur creativity.
“Carbon capture and storage is a critical tool to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and we are thrilled to work with Sterling Ethanol, LLC and Yuma Ethanol, LLC to permanently sequester carbon dioxide underground,” said Carbon America CEO Brent Lewis. “Projects like these will help the ethanol industry decarbonize and contribute to global emissions reductions needed to reach net-zero by 2050.”
