GALVA, Iowa — Just off Highway 20 outside of Galva, Iowa in Ida County, Quad County Corn Processors is one of 32 facilities partnering with Summit Carbon Solutions’ proposed carbon capture and storage project. Wednesday morning they invited stakeholders and members of the media to the facility for a tour to see how this partnership could benefit Iowans.
In operation since the 2000s, QCCP is a leader in ethanol production in Iowa. They’ve partnered with Summit Carbon Solutions and their proposed pipeline to capture the CO2 the plant creates. “We actually use every piece of the kernel of corn all the way from protein to converting the fiber to cellulosic, so low carbon intense ethanol and also now the co2 value,” said Delayne Johnson, CEO of Quad County Corn Processors.
