Wolf Carbon Solutions, ADM announce partnership to advance decarbonisation of ethanol production
Tuesday, 18 January, 2022, 16 : 00 PM [IST]
Denver & Chicago
Wolf Carbon Solutions US LLC (Wolf Carbon Solutions), and ADM, a global leader in nutrition and agricultural origination and processing, today announced that they have signed a Letter of Intent paving the pathway toward further decarbonisation of the company’s footprint via construction of a pipeline – developed, owned and operated by the company – which, together with a commercial agreement, will allow for the capture, compression and transportation of carbon dioxide produced at Clinton and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, facilities.

Designed as the backbone infrastructure needed to support the region’s lower carbon transition, the 350-mile steel trunk line will be capable of transporting 12 million tons of CO2 per year. The pipeline will offer dedicated capacity to transport CO2 from the company’s ethanol and cogeneration facilities in Clinton and Cedar Rapids to be stored permanently underground at the fully permitted and already-operational sequestration site in Decatur, Illinois. The pipeline would have significant spare capacity to serve other third-party customers looking to decarbonize across the Midwest and Ohio River Valley.

David Schmunk, president, Wolf Carbon Solutions, said, “This partnership is an excellent example of industries working together to decarbonize and deliver upon their ESG strategies and commitments. Our organisations offer a great combination of complementary skills and experience — ADM with more than 10 years of experience owning and operating CO2 sequestration wells, and the Wolf Carbon Solutions team with expertise in owning and operating carbon capture facilities and pipeline transportation systems, including North America’s largest third-party CO2 pipeline in Alberta, Canada. We are delighted to share our expertise to further the effort to develop low carbon fuels in the U.S.”

The carbon capture and sequestration capabilities in Decatur have allowed it to safely and permanently store more than 3.5 million metric tons of CO2 a mile and a half under the surface of the Earth, and have paved the way for increased decarbonisation of the company’s operations, including its announcements in 2021 of a partnership to construct a zero-emissions power plant adjacent to the company’s Decatur corn complex, and its achievement of the wheat milling industry’s first carbon-neutral footprint.

Chris Cuddy, president, Carbohydrate Solutions for ADM, said, “ADM is continuing to lead the way to decarbonise the industries in which we operate. Customers are increasingly turning to us to help them meet their Scope 3 emissions commitments with low carbon-intensity sustainable solutions. This is an exciting opportunity for ADM to connect some of our largest processing facilities with our carbon capture capabilities, advancing our work to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions while delivering sustainable solutions for our customers. These efforts are core to our purpose, our culture and our growth, and we look forward to working with Wolf Carbon Solutions to finalise this agreement and further decarbonise our operations and our industry.”
