Dear Iowa Utilities Board, 

I am writing to express my support for the implementation of Summit Carbon Solution’s carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology. I firmly believe that their initiatives have the potential to bring significant economic benefits to our state. 

First and foremost, CCS technology can play a crucial role in reducing the carbon intensity scores associated with various industries, including ethanol production. By capturing and storing carbon emissions, we can significantly enhance the reputation and competitiveness of Iowa’s ethanol industry in the global market. 

Not only will Summit’s project enhance ethanol plants, but it also will attract new businesses and industries to Iowa that are seeking to utilize carbon capture. In turn, jobs will be created, the tax base will expand, and local economies will strengthen. 

By taking proactive measures toward a sustainable future, we can position Iowa as a leader in producing renewable fuels. I ask you to support Summit Carbon Solutions.
