CARBON DIOXIDE STORAGE

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. _ A company could proceed with its plans to store as much as 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide underground in western Indiana under a bill that state legislators approved. The carbon dioxide storage is part of a $450 million project proposed by Wabash Valley Resources LLC for a plant near Terre Haute producing anhydrous ammonia fertilizer. The project would convert a closed SG Solutions coal gasification plant and would pump the carbon dioxide produced underground instead of releasing the greenhouse gas into the atmosphere, the (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star reported.
