Catch me if you can: Carbon trapping experiment set for Springfield

Read the full story in the Illinois Times.

The state and federal governments have granted $67 million for a project at City Water, Light and Power aimed at capturing carbon dioxide from coal before emissions reach the air.

Construction is expected to begin next year, with operations commencing in 2023. “We’re committed to run this, roughly, through 2024,” said Kevin O’Brien, director of the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center at the University of Illinois in Urbana, which is overseeing the project. “We’ll know pretty well early on how well this is working. Fingers crossed, it will work very, very well.”
