Continuum Ag’s TopSoil Summit focused on all things Carbon Intensity this year. One of the panels during the TopSoil Summit featured our 45Z Value Partner Panel. During this panel, CEO Mitchell Hora is joined by a few of the experts Continuum Ag is partnering with on Carbon Intensity (CI) Certification as part of the 45Z Tax Credits going into effect on January 1, 2025.

This discussion with the 45Z Value Partners will give you a better understanding of how the CI Certification process works between the farmer to the ethanol plants, and ultimately the IRS.

Folks Who Know Farming, Know Us.

Mitchell Hora founded Continuum Ag in 2015 as an agricultural consulting company, specializing in the Haney Soil Health Test.

Today, Continuum Ag is a soil health data intelligence company using a proprietary tool, called TopSoil® which enables farmers to profit from improving their soil health.

What is Carbon Intensity (CI)?

Carbon Intensity (CI) is the production footprint assigned to a bushel of grain. The score itself is generated using the federally approved GREET model. Today, the estimated standard CI score for CORN is 29.1kg CO2E/mmBtu of ethanol energy.

The lower the CI score, the more attractive that production is for end users.

For example: the CI score of 0.0 means the bushel is net carbon neutral. Premium payments for lower carbon grains encourage growers to implement practices that lower carbon emissions and ultimately result in lower CI Scores.
