It takes dry ice to get vaccines shipped across the country which could be coming from ethanol plants, reports Nebraska TV.

The Nebraska ethanol industry has already produced hand sanitizer for the fight against COVID-19. Those plants also produce carbon dioxide which can be captured for use in beverages, food, and dry ice.

Growth Energy says many plants capture CO2 during the fermentation process.

Growth Energy backs a bipartisan effort in Congress known at the SCALE Act that would strengthen pipeline networks to transport carbon dioxide from ethanol plants to the places where it's needed.
