Thousands of Industry Influential Minds Come Together To Build a Low-Carbon Future

Climate change is currently the major global environmental challenge. Nations strive to transit their economy from carbon-intensive to low-carbon in terms of adaption and transition by reducing or capturing greenhouse gas (CO2) emission. As a pioneer in a low carbon economy, Canada has implemented carbon tax system and established huge fund support for low carbon technology development and marketing. 

 

As carbon capture, utilization and storage becomes more prevalent, some advocates question whether it amounts to another way to prop up the oil and gas industry. Others argue it’s the only way forward to a net-zero future. Lets dive into a discussion at the Carbon Capture Canada Conference.

Key Conference Themes

1. Carbon Capture Projects Driving Decarbonization 

The federal emissions reduction plan which calls for Canada to reduce its emissions by 40 to 45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 — envisions national CCS capacity more than tripling by 2030. Achieving these targets will require adding facilities that can capture and store at least 15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually. Decarbonizing hard to abate sectors such as power generation, cement, steel, and petrochemical processing will have a significant impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions as these industries combined account for nearly 20% of greenhouse emissions globally. Delegates will learn what policy decisions and innovations are needed for Canada to achieve its ambitious climate targets and what other nations are doing to achieve their decarbonization goals.

 

2. Investment in Carbon Capture Projects

The proposed Polaris CCS project by Shell and the Pathways Alliance announcement of its $16.5- billion carbon capture pipeline project are strong indicators of increased investor confidence in carbon capture. With the recently announced Investment Tax Credit (ITC) that is anticipated to create 20 to 25 commercial-scale carbon capture and storage projects in Canada within the next decade, Canada will be poised to be a carbon capture leader. Will this new tax credit help spur companies to make final investment decisions, or will additional funding support be needed to maximize Canada’s carbon capture potential and compete with the significant subsidies associated with the Inflation Reduction Act in the United States?

 

3. Transforming the Carbon Capture Ecosystem

Tremendous carbon capture progress has already been made as evidenced by the Quest and Alberta Carbon Trunk Line projects that have safely captured and stored a total of more than 11.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) since 2015. With transformative carbon capture technologies and processes expanding such as Direct Air Capture (DAC), artificial intelligence, and quantum engineering, the future looks promising for CCUS. Carbon Capture Canada will demonstrate why CCS projects will require a variety of skilled workers from multiple industries to create a sustainable carbon capture ecosystem that will be a vital component of Canada’s overall economy.
