Lignite Research Council (LRC) has approved a carbon capture and storage project at the Blue Flint Ethanol Plant, located adjacent to the Coal Creek Station in North Dakota.

The LRC had passed the $3.4m project last month, but had included a contingency provision; however, the North Dakota Industrial Commission, which oversees the Lignite Research Programme had asked the LRC to take another look at the importance of the project.

Now approved by the council, the proposal will go back to the North Dakota Industrial Commission for its vote on 19th June.
