Last Friday, a US company canceled a pipeline project that would have transported carbon dioxide from midwestern ethanol plants to permanent storage facilities. The company cited unpredictable regulatory issues as an integral reason in the decision to cancel the project. But what exactly is a carbon dioxide pipeline for, and how does transporting gas like carbon dioxide and hydrogen fit into the US decarbonization strategy? Resources for the Future Senior Fellow and Industry and Fuels Program Director Alan Krupnick shares his thoughts in this installment of In Focus.
