Carbon Capture and Storage


Fossil fuels continue to play a significant role in the global energy portfolio. Proving carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology will help to secure the long-term viability of sustainable coal production in Saskatchewan and around the world.

Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

SaskPower developed the world’s first and largest commercial-scale CCS project of its kind in Estevan, Saskatchewan.

This facility provides technology developers with an opportunity to test new and emerging carbon capture systems for controlling carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.

The research centre hosts Aquistore, an independent research and monitoring project that demonstrates that storing carbon dioxide deep underground is a safe, workable solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Our amine chemical laboratory conducts comprehensive research & analysis to support the Boundary Dam Carbon Capture Project and Shand Carbon Capture Test Facility. This state-of-the-art facility provides a clearer understanding of the types of emissions coming from our carbon capture projects.
