Canada launches call for studies on carbon capture technologies
OTTAWA, ON, August 9, 2021 / CNW / – The development of clean technologies will boost our economy, reduce emissions and create jobs. By advancing clean technologies like carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), the government is committed to building a clean energy future and achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
The Honorable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources, has announced a new call for expressions of interest to support CCUS across the country. Funded under the Energy Innovation Program (EIP), this call will support end-to-end engineering and design (FEED) studies that have the potential to reduce the impact of carbon emissions.
Canada is a world leader in the CCUS space. Building on this expertise through FEED studies will increase the knowledge base of the application of CCUS to different industrial facilities, which supports the future of technology in Canada and internationally.
As part of the 2021 budget, the federal government is investing $ 319 million in research, development and demonstrations to advance the commercial viability of CCUS technologies. These funds are supporting businesses, universities, nonprofits, government and federal labs on the path to net zero emissions by 2050.
EIP advances clean energy technologies that help Canada achieve its climate change objectives while supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. It funds research, development and demonstration projects and other related scientific activities.
from Canada strengthened climate plan calls for the development of a comprehensive CCUS strategy and the government to explore possibilities to increase from Canada global competitiveness in this growing industry. Natural Resources Canada is gathering ideas and perspectives from key partners and stakeholders as this strategy is developed, recognizing that the opportunities and challenges for CCUS may differ across regions and sectors. Canada.
The government supports innovative clean energy technology projects that lead to competitive and sustainable natural resource sectors.
“Carbon capture, use and storage will reduce emissions, create jobs and increase our competitiveness. This is how we get to net zero by 2050. “
