Leaders - CCS in Canada
 
Large scale CCS ready for 2nd Generation
A team of engineers at the International CCS Knowledge Centre have uncovered a
game-changer for large scale CCS – catapulting it to second generation
 
University of Calgary field research station to test nanoparticles to better monitor subsurface CO2
More than a dozen PhD students and postdocs from Norway have been learning about
techniques being developed at the University of Calgary
 
Projects and policy
 
Fully decarbonising Europe’s energy system by 2050
Pöyry has produced a point of view on how Europe’s energy system can be fully decarbonised by
2050 in line with the Paris Agreement objectives. The study investigates the key question: “How
can a fully decarbonised energy sector be achieved and what are the risks of precluding options in
favour of certain technologies?”
 
UK CCS renaissance still depends on government’s timely action
Industry is ready to put money into deploying CCS but needs to know that the policies
will be in place to make it a viable investment. By Rebecca Bell, Indira Mann and
Philippa Parmiter, Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage
 
From a ‘waste disposal’ problem to a ‘CO2 industry’ opportunity
Bellona, Fortum Oslo Varme and Oslo City Climate Agency gathered important
stakeholders for an event on the potential for a CO2 industry linked to waste
incineration
 
Easing the burden of Carbon Capture in concrete production
Dr. Geoff J. Nesbitt, CEO, Verditek looks at how Regenerative Froth Contactor (RFC)
technology can reduce emissions in cement production, easing the burden commonly
associated with mandatory carbon footprint reduction
 
UK CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce report: delivering clean growth
An independent report to government on progressing carbon capture, usage and
storage in the UK has proposed a viable business plan but urgency is needed
 
Why do public responses to CCUS matter if CO2 is stored offshore?
By Christine Boomsma, Senior Researcher and Emma ter Mors, Assistant Professor
Leiden University, who are both working on societal support for the Align CCUS project
 
ZEP report on role of CCUS in a below 2 degrees scenario
The report concludes that CCS is available today, constitutes an essential part of the
lowest cost solution, and is particularly necessary for reducing emissions from 'hard to
mitigate' sectors such as industrial processes and distributed heating
 
IEA bioenergy report: implementing bio-CCS in biofuels production
The report looks at two example cases selected to cover a representative range of
gasification technologies, biofuel products and possibilities for CCS infrastructure
 
Making carbon a commodity: the potential of carbon capture RD&D
A report from the Carbon Utilization Research Council and ClearPath Foundation
examines the potential for market-driven deployment of CCUS technologies for coal
and natural gas power plants

Capture and utilisation - Improving CO2 capture efficiency

New heat integration strategy improves efficiency of a CCS facility
The aim is to minimize the impact that capturing carbon has on a power plant’s
ability to produce electricity by being more efficient in how we reduce, reuse and
recycle heat
 
Tackling the cooling challenge of a large-scale CCS retrofit
A new hybrid design cooling system study provides a solution to the cooling
challenge for new CCS facilities, and demonstrates how to maintain a zero liquid
discharge facility
 
Transport and storage
 
Alberta Carbon Trunk Line finance and construction agreement
Enhance Energy and Wolf Carbon Solutions have entered into a project development
and coordination agreement for the construction and operation of the Alberta Carbon
Trunk Line
