SPRINGFIELD — Missouri's carbon sequestration project is getting another $2.4 million in federal funding.

Republican U.S. Sen. Kit Bond announced the supplemental funding on Wednesday during a visit to City Utilities in Springfield.

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 says the demonstration project in Springfield is an important step toward addressing that need. He says the effort could help save millions of dollars by not having to build new carbon emissions pipelines.
