Carbon Capture & Storage Summit


June 13, 2022 ~ Minneapolis, MN

Summit Sponsors

Capturing and storing carbon dioxide in underground wells has the potential to become the most consequential technological deployment in the history of the broader biofuels industry. Deploying effective carbon capture and storage at biofuels plants will cement ethanol and biodiesel as the lowest carbon liquid fuels commercially available in the marketplace. The Carbon Capture & Storage Summit will offer attendees a comprehensive look at the economics of carbon capture and storage, the infrastructure required to make it possible and the financial and marketplace impacts to participating producers.

Presentation topics will include:
  • Tax Policy
  • Impact on Carbon Intensity of Fuel
  • Required Plant Infrastructure
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Pipeline Requirements and Construction
  • Low Carbon Fuel Markets and Mandates


Access to all events at one price - including admission to all conference sessions (preconferences, co-located event, plenary sessions and breakout sessions), entry to the Expo, all meal functions, and speaker presentations (available on conference app during the event). Producers Attend for Free.

Sponsor Spotlight

In early 2021, Summit Carbon Solutions announced a partnership with dozens of ethanol plants across the Midwest. Utilizing proven technology, Summit Carbon Solutions will capture carbon dioxide before it is emitted into the atmosphere and channel it to North Dakota where it will be permanently and safely stored deep underground. Summit Carbon Solutions will drive job growth across the Midwest, reduce emissions, and provide a substantial boost to the ethanol and agricultural industries that are so critical to the U.S. economy.

Trust Battelle’s multi-disciplinary subsurface teams to cost-effectively move your carbon capture and storage project from plan to operations. We offer ethanol producers an option that is good for the environment and the bottom line. Look to Battelle as a partner to improve your carbon intensity score.

Navigator CO2 specializes in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and has safely constructed and operated over 1,300 miles of new infrastructure since being founded in 2012. Navigator’s CCUS system, Heartland Greenway, will provide biofuel producers and other industrial processors in five Midwest states with a long-term and cost-effective means to reduce their carbon footprint. Once fully expanded, the system will have the ability to capture, transport, and store up to 15 million metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.

We deliver the entire CO2 capture-transport-storage value chain from screening through development, construction, operation and project closure – with a commitment to finding the right solution for emitters, communities, and the environment. We are a super developer. Carbon America takes the complexity out of Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS).

Wolf Carbon Solutions US ("Wolf") is a Denver-based developer, owner and operator of carbon capture facilities and pipeline transportation systems. Wolf is backed by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board ("CPP Investments") and was formed 2021 with a mandate to invest in energy transition infrastructure across the lower 48. Wolf is an affiliate of Wolf Midstream, the Canadian energy platform, the owner and operator of Alberta Carbon Trunk Line ("ACTL") with ~2 million tonnes of CO2 captured to date.

Foss & Company, a leader in tax credit financing, has partnered with a world class subsurface and storage provider to provide a powerful one-stop solution for carbon capture and storage projects.
