Privately backed CapturePoint LLC has submitted an application to build a carbon capture storage facility in Rapides Parish, Louisiana, roughly 90 miles north of Lafayette, according to a filing with the EPA.

The application, a so-called “Class VI well permit” required to permanently sequester carbon, was filed in June, a company spokesperson said, declining to comment on the size or scope of the project.

The development is one of several proposed in Louisiana, which would take emissions from refineries and industrial facilities and store them underground.
