Heartland Greenway Files Petition for Application for CO2 Pipeline with ICC; Includes Eminent Domain Request

Heartland Greenway, the carbon sequestration pipeline project that will transport the C-O-2 via a pipeline from ethanol and fertilizer plants in the Midwest, to wells northeast of Taylorville, on Monday filed a petition to ask the Illinois Commerce Commission for a permit to build the Illinois portion of the pipeline.

 

Jim Prescott with Heartland Greenway told Regional Radio News that the petition includes a request to allow eminent domain.

 

 

Prescott added that permits for the wells must come from the Federal Government and are not governed by eminent domain.

 

 

The project is also being considered by the Christian County Board to allow the pipeline and injection wells.
