Chief Industries, Catahoula Resources Advancing Carbon Capture, Sequestration in Nebraska

Chief Industries, Inc. and Catahoula Resources have entered into an agreement to jointly develop carbon capture and permanent sequestration (CCS) within Nebraska.

Through this arrangement, Chief Ethanol, a division of Chief Industries based in Hastings, NE, joins forces with Catahoula, a portfolio company of private investment firm The Energy and Minerals Group (EMG), one of the largest investors in midstream infrastructure in North America.

Catahoula and Chief are evaluating CCS infrastructure investments that will enhance the sustainability and improve the economics of ethanol production through low-cost carbon storage within Nebraska. Work to evaluate favorable storage geology has begun through Catahoula’s joint development arrangement with Battelle.

“The passage of LB650 shows that Nebraska is serious about our global environment. Allowing for the geologic storage of carbon dioxide will truly benefit the citizens and industries within our state,” said Chief Industries CEO DJ Eihusen. “Chief is excited to be teaming up with a group such as Catahoula. Their expertise and knowledge in this space leaves us encouraged that Chief Industries, Inc. will continue to provide a lasting and positive environmental impact.”

“We see Nebraska’s forward-thinking support of carbon dioxide sequestration as a springboard for differentiating Nebraska’s ethanol industry and we are excited to expand upon this vision by aligning with Chief--a strong, deeply rooted, family-owned company. The use of proven carbon capture infrastructure targeting nearby, low-cost storage is a compelling plan for investment in the local economies of Nebraska,” said Jeff Rawls, CEO of Catahoula Resources.
