Coverage of carbon capture since March 21, 2021.

Geothermal power generation potential raised by both NDP and Sask. Party

"...Environment Minister Warren Kaeding was asked several questions about that, but one of his answers referenced the Deep Earth Energy Production project near Torquay. He said, “Well, I would say even directly supporting the electricity is going to be generated to support electric vehicles, SaskPower has made a commitment that they will be going up to 50 per cent renewable by 2030, which isn't very, very long from now. So you've seen a number of facilities that have been built on a commercial scale, solar facilities that have been built on a on a commercial scale..."

Moe hints at coming developments for small modular reactors and carbon capture

"...Moe concluded, “So, many opportunities ahead on both fronts, the small modular nuclear power reactors, as well as the potential for really taking the next step in carbon capture and storage and moving it, not only to bumping the yield, and taking carbon out of every fourth barrel of oil that we produce in the enhanced oil recovery process, but really moving this on to the next conversation around hydrogen production and some of the opportunities that we’re being informed about, quite frankly, by private industry there. ”..."

Creating food security, curbing emissions in local farming

"...“NFU is a family farm focused organization that tries to listen to our members and have a voice, so the average farmer is represented when policy decisions are made on the federal level,” said Legault. “We truly believe there is an ton of capacity for climate change solutions to happen on our agricultural landscape. ”Legault says the report highlights a need to focus on soil health to increase biodiversity, produce nutrient dense crops and livestock, and reduce the need for synthetic nitrogen fertilizer..."

Canadian biodiversity expert speaks with islanders

"...Technologies such as renewable energies and electric vehicles are partial solutions, but will not solve our climate crisis on their own. That’s true also for behavioural changes such as reducing our travel or growing and buying more of our own food locally. Carbon capture and sequestration technologies are exceedingly expensive, and have little to no promise to significantly reduce atmospheric carbon..."

Proposed Alberta methanol project inks deal to add carbon capture ability

"...“It gives us the confidence to start exploring the best ways to create another made-in-Alberta carbon management solution in another part of the province. ”Currently, Enhance’s partner Wolf Midstream captures CO2 from two industrial plants northeast of Edmonton and transports them south on the 240-kilometre Alberta Carbon Trunk Line system to be injected underground in an Enhance Energy oilfield for improved oil recovery and permanent storage. Adding the carbon capture component is essential to attract financial backers for his company’s proposed plant because it will enable its production to be net carbon emission neutral and thus considered “blue methanol,” said Nauticol CEO and co-founder Mark Tonner..."
