Debate continues over carbon pipelines in Iowa
Arguments over carbon pipelines continue in Iowa. Currently, there are three major projects in development in the Hawkeye state and a district court ruled on a lawsuit over the Navigator CO2 project.
According to DTN, the company sued landowner, Martin Koenig, who refused to allow officials on his property to conduct a site survey. He then filed a counter claim to stop Navigator CO2 from entering his land without permission or compensation.
The judge ruled in favor of Koenig.
Overall, the three carbon pipeline companies working in Iowa say the vast majority of surveys have been voluntarily completed.
