Kirkland Advises Summit on Carbon Capture Partnership with POET

Kirkland & Ellis counseled Summit Carbon Solutions on a partnership with POET that will connect the world’s largest biofuel producer with the world’s largest carbon capture and storage project. The partnership strategically expands the carbon opportunity across the Midwest by incorporating POET’s 12 facilities in Iowa and five facilities in South Dakota into the Summit project. This addition will facilitate the capture, transportation and permanent storage of 4.7 million metric tons of CO2 annually from the 17 POET bioprocessing plants.
