Carbon capture

paving the way to clean energy

A responsible and sustainable Power source

Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a vital part of the future success of Coal Creek Station. CCUS technology has been proven and is an economical option for a facility like Coal Creek Station. We see CCUS as the best option to manage CO2 emissions at our facility.

We are excited to be leading the way in carbon capture, setting the stage for changing and improving the way the world manages carbon. Rainbow Energy Center is committed to be a world leader in responsible electricity generation and carbon management. We are dedicated to do our part to help North Dakota reach its goal of being carbon neutral by 2030.

What is carbon capture?

Reducing our footprint

Carbon Capture and Storage is the process of capturing CO2 from a large stationary source, compressing the CO2, and injecting the gas deep underground for permanent geologic storage or recovery of other minerals.

It allows us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint, a key priority for environmental stewardship

Where We're At

Spearheading new technology

We are actively working with the State’s leading experts on the topic, the Energy Environment and Research Center (EERC) at the University of North Dakota.

The EERC is an essential partner in this project. They have spent decades researching and understanding the geology of North Dakota and how that relates to the proper storage of CO2 emissions.

Our carbon capture project will set the standard for what every consumer needs — affordable, reliable power that is produced responsibly.
