Carbon capture operation and maintenance costs grow by nearly $15M in four years

Costs of maintenance and operating the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) facility at Boundary Dam Three (BD3) have been steadily climbing since 2014.

“We asked a written question about the operating and maintenance costs for the carbon capture facility itself, and they indicated last year it was $27 million. 386 more words


Scientists accurately model the action of aerosols on clouds

Global climate is a tremendously complex phenomenon, and researchers are making painstaking progress, year by year, to try to develop ever more accurate models. Now, an international group including researchers from the Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) in… 453 more words


Despite two-million tonnes, milestone carbon capture hasn't won over critics

Four-years after it launched an innovative new technology, SaskPower has captured two-million tonnes of carbon.

It’s the equivalent of taking half-a-million cars off the road. 402 more words

Carbon capture and storage (CCS): How Bill Gates aims to clean up the planet

It’s a simple idea: strip CO2 from the air and use it to produce carbon-neutral fuel. But can it work on an industrial scale?

It’s nothing much to look at, but the tangle of pipes, pumps, tanks, reactors, chimneys and ducts on a messy industrial estate outside the logging town of Squamish in western Canada could just provide the fix to stop the world tipping into runaway climate change and substitute dwindling supplies of conventional fuel. 81 more words
