Another U.S. first: IL's carbon dioxide sequestration project

by KelsiDayle on Dec. 05th, 2011

The Los Angeles Times' Greenspace blog published this story on the U.S.'s first man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration project last week.
(What's carbon sequestration? Check out this previous Buzz post for more info on carbon sequestration and geothermal energy.)
Located in Decatur, Illinois, this project is only a demonstration -- but it's already

"...pumping over a million metric tons of man-made liquid CO2 into permanent underground storage."

Wow! Will this be the next great thing in CO2 management?
