There are 5,000 miles of carbon dioxide pipelines already in service in the United States that have been operating safely for years. Summit Carbon Solutions will utilize high-strength American steel that is that is externally coated and designed to more than accommodate the anticipated pressure of the material moving through the pipeline
The Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline will utilize an Impressed Current Cathodic Protection system designed to protect the pipe from potentially corrosive elements in the soil.
As required by PHMSA, Summit will utilize existing technology to internally inspect the entire pipeline to ensure no corrosion or other anomalies exist. Inspection will occur every five years.
