Agriculture is Main Street America

Agriculture is the heartbeat and backbone of Main Street America, the Midwest economy and way of life. Ethanol is key to the future of Midwest agriculture, because it maintains a market for half of the corn crop, helps maintain good farm incomes, and is part of the foundation for high farmland values.

Ethanol with Carbon Capture

Ethanol helps power our lives, lowers energy costs, improves the environment, provides domestic energy and supports our Midwest standard of living. Capturing and permanently storing carbon from the ethanol production process makes ethanol a net-zero fuel and guarantees its future

Carbon Capture Infrastructure

To ensure a bright future for Midwest agriculture, we must build the infrastructure that captures and transports carbon from ethanol refineries to permanent underground storage. The Summit carbon capture project and similar projects do just that.

Environment, Climate and Quality of Life

Infrastructure like the Summit carbon capture project is key to reducing carbon emissions, mitigating climate change, supporting a vibrant and growing Midwest agriculture economy, and maintaining a healthy, safe, and thriving standard of living throughout the Midwest. Supporting these infrastructure projects safeguards our region’s and our families’ futures.

Get Involved

Carbon Capture technology is already being used by other ethanol producers, and for the Midwest, it has the potential to preserve the future of agriculture and protect our economic way of life while helping our climate.

Summit Carbon Solutions is currently planning the Summit carbon capture project, which will:

  • Remove 12 million tons of carbon dioxide per year, equal to 2.6 million cars
  • Protect the market for nearly half the corn produced in the United States.
  • Create 11,000 high-quality jobs during construction
  • Generate $371 million in Federal, State & Local taxes during construction
  • Support 1,100 permanent jobs once operational
  • And generate $97 million additional taxes once operational

Completing the Summit carbon capture project and similar projects will help make sure we continue to have a market for nearly half the corn produced in the United States. It is the right way to support our economic future.
