Dear Iowa Utilities Board Members, Huser, Lozier, and Byrnes: 

Summit Carbon Solutions’ carbon capture and sequestration project will provide tremendous economic opportunity for Iowa’s ethanol and agricultural industries. As many of us know, innovation is imperative for long-term business success and right now that path is leading us straight to carbon capture technology. 

Carbon capture and sequestration is a major step in the path forward for ethanol and agriculture – two industries that go hand and hand. Companies like Summit Carbon Solutions are looking to provide ethanol plants and farmers with an opportunity to increase their profits in the growing low-carbon fuel market, all while lowering their carbon emissions. At Haber we see carbon tacking down by our products and carbon capture done by Summit as a essential part of the future ag economy. 

Global markets will continue to prioritize low-carbon fuel whether or not Iowa and other midwestern states embrace carbon capture and sequestration. We must be one of the first states on board with this technology as a way to support Iowa’s two most prominent industries, ethanol and agriculture. Neither lives up to its full potential without the other. 

By September 2022, Summit Carbon Solutions had acquired over 50% of its route in Iowa, proving that despite the misinformation from special interest groups, the project is finding success. 

I thank the board for reading this letter and hope it will choose to support this incredible innovation taking place right here in Iowa.
