Sen. Bond to speak, listen about energy in Springfield

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 | 9:28 a.m. CDT

SPRINGFIELD — Sen. Kit Bond planned a visit to Springfield on Wednesday to hear an update on a carbon sequestration project involving several Missouri power companies.

The Republican lawmaker was scheduled to speak at City Utilities about the nation's energy future and to announce additional funding for the next phase of the project.

Carbon sequestration involves injecting carbon dioxide captured from power plant emissions into deep geological formations. Electric utilities across the country are seeking to find new ways to reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

Bond's office said the demonstration project in Springfield is an important step toward addressing that need.
