Read the full story at WQAD.

Navigator CO₂ Ventures has filed for a certificate of authority from the Illinois Commerce Commission, a petition it needs to get approved before it can start construction on the 1,300-mile carbon capture pipeline.

The “Heartland Greenway” pipeline is proposed to be built across five states, including Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. About 250 miles of the pipeline would run through 13 Illinois counties

Opponents are concerned about the pipeline permanently damaging farmland and threatening the safety of residents living nearby.
