6 million cubic meters) of CO2 each day. The huge volumes of carbon dioxide produced by the plant reflect the fact that it is turning lignite, a material with a high carbon-to-hydrogen ratio, into a fuel with a much lower carbon-to-hydrogen ratio. The excess carbon shows up as CO2, which, initially, was just vented into the atmosphere. Today, however, a 205-mile (330-km) CO2 pipeline stretches from the Great Plains Synfuel Plant to oil fields in Saskatchewan, Canada, where it is injected into the oil fields to increase field pressure and improve oil recovery rates.
