Jason Laumb and the EERC, are working with industry partners on a $6-million project to determining the cost of installing a carbon-capture system at a coal-powered utility plant, the Milton R. Young Station power plant near Center, N.D., northwest of Bismarck. The idea is to use such a facility to caputure carbon dioxide and use it to enhance oil recovery by injecting it deep into the ground, where it would be forever stored.
