About Heartland Greenway
Heartland Greenway is a Navigator CO₂ Ventures proposed carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) system that will provide biofuel producers and other industrial customers in five Midwest states with a long-term and cost-effective means to reduce their carbon footprint. Heartland Greenway will reach industrial customers in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. Operations are expected to be phased in early 2025.
The multi-faceted project will help customers finance and construct their carbon dioxide (CO₂) capture equipment; safely transport the captured CO₂ over a newly built 1,300-mile pipeline network; and permanently sequester 10 – 15 million metric tons of CO2 into a safe and secure, underground sequestration site. Navigator’s project is one of the first large-scale, commercially viable CCS projects to be developed in the United States.
Once fully expanded, Heartland Greenway will have the ability to capture and store 15 million metric tons of CO2 every year: that is equivalent annually to the emissions from approximately 3.2 million cars driven, CO2 sequestered by 18.3 million acres of US forest, or eliminating the carbon footprint of the Des Moines metro area 3 times over.
