BD3 Status Update: January 2018

February 9, 2018



The Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) facility at Boundary Dam Power Station was online and available 100 per cent in January. In total, the facility captured 81,008 tonnes of carbon dioxide – approximately 81 per cent of its maximum capacity. No maintenance outages were required, but a temporary decrease in production at the power station briefly lowered the capture rate for the CCS plant.

The CCS plant continued to benefit from upgrades installed this summer. The upgrades allow for minor maintenance issues to be addressed without shutting down the process. While the upgrades have improved the reliability of the plant, efforts to improve the amine chemistry continue. These efforts include programs at the Carbon Capture Test Facility that could increase efficiency and reduce future costs for the CCS process.
