Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."


Used EV batteries power up California solar farm

"...Electric vehicle batteries are typically replaced when they reach 70 to 80 percent of their capacity, largely because the range they provide at that point begins to dwindle. Almost all of the critical materials inside them, including lithium, nickel, and cobalt, are reusable. A growing domestic recycling industry, supported by billions of dollars in loans from the Energy Department and incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act, is being built to prepare for what will one day be tens of millions of retired EV battery packs..."


Maple Ridge, B.C. to be home of new $1.05-billion lithium-ion battery plant

"...The federal government is putting up $204. 5 million through the Net Zero Accelerator Initiative, which is aimed at supporting companies that can help Canada reach its greenhouse gas emission targets. The plant will anchor E-One Moli's North American operations and create a B..."

Latin America

"...Beyond tackling CO2 emissions, major producers in the region can reduce methane emissions from oil and gas operations by nearly 80 per cent at low cost, and around 40 per cent with no net costs, supporting the Global Methane Pledge that most countries have signed. Based on announced pledges, emissions from land use and agriculture, which account for half of economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions in the region today, are cut by the end of the decade and reach net zero. About 85 per cent of forests in the region are in countries that are part of the Glasgow Pledge, which aims to stop deforestation by 2030..."


South Korea's Posco Holdings considering investment in Alberta lithium

"...The company– which is best known for steel production but also invests in minerals, energy and more– signed a memorandum of understanding this week with provincial Crown corporation Invest Alberta. Under the terms of the agreement, Posco will begin exploring prospects for lithium investment in Alberta, while the province will support the Korean company's ambitions by helping them navigate the acquisition of mining rights as well as regulatory and tax-structure requirements. “Through our strategic collaboration with Invest Alberta, Posco Holdings is not only advancing our commitment to securing lithium but also reinforcing our standing in the global secondary battery supply chain,” said Kyung Sub Lee, Posco Holdings executive vice-president, in a news release..."


Is There a Sustainable Solution to the Lithium-Battery Shortage?

"...Wilkinson says EV makers should consider other types of batteries. Hydrogen fuel cells, for example, have a higher energy-to-weight ratio, which gives them a greater range, but they are expensive to produce. “Heavy-duty trucks could use hydrogen fuel cells, and that would free up lithium batteries to be primarily used for passenger vehicles,” he says..."


E-scooter battery explosion, fire prompts evacuation of Bowness Road businesses

"...Calgary Fire Department officials issued a warning Monday afternoon after a lithium-ion electric scooter battery exploded at a business in Bowness..."

A look at some reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling on feds' environmental review law

"...Five out of seven judges found most of the law unconstitutional, because it seeks to regulate activities within provincial jurisdiction. Here is some of the reaction to the decision:“The Government of Canada developed the Impact Assessment Act to create a better set of rules that respect the environment, Indigenous rights and ensure projects get assessed in a timely way. We remain committed to these principles..."
