Carbon Capture and Storage in Canada
From Global Energy Monitor
Carbon Capture and Storage projects in Canada include the:
- Project Pioneer, which proposed to retrofit a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project to the existing coal-fired Keephills 3 power station west of Edmonton. In mid-October 2009 Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, speaking at the Keephills power station, said that "this plant will not just be a first for Canada; indeed, it will be the first of its kind in the world! ... Innovations like carbon capture and storage will define the future of this industry." In April 2012 the project collapsed with Transalta stating that it was uneconomic.
