Velocys plans to build and integrate a CO2 capture unit at its planned biomass-to-liquid (BTL) commercial facility in Mississippi, U.S. The carbon capture project is a joint collaboration with Occidental Petroleum's venture arm, which will presumably use the CO2 for enhanced oil recovery applications. Capturing and sequestrating the CO2 will lower the carbon intensity of Velocys' fuel and generate higher credits in the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) system – these credits are a necessity for Velocys due the high cost of fuel production from Fischer-Tropsch.
