Senator Hoeven announces $5.1M award to make Buelah plant world's largest carbon capture, utilization and storage site

(Fargo, ND) -- Senator John Hoeven today announced a $5.1 million award to advance carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) monitoring at the Great Plains Synfuels Plant in Beulah, North Dakota.

Hoven said the monitoring and sequestration project, which is being led by the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC), is key to the development of commercially-viable CCUS. 

The senator said the project will advance the expansion of CCUS at the Dakota Gasification Company’s (DGC) Great Plains Synfuels Plant, which would make the facility the largest coal-based CCUS project utilizing geologic storage in the world and the first project in the U.S. to utilize both enhanced oil recovery and geologic storage.
