Employees working inside the Carbon Capture facility.

During the month of June 2021, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility at Boundary Dam Power Station captured 9,430 tonnes of carbon dioxide. The average daily capture when CCS was online was 2,058 tonnes per day with a peak one-day capture of 2,368 tonnes. The CCS facility, along with BD3, was offline starting June 5 for a planned outage with a planned return to service in July. The planned outage was necessary to perform routine inspections and repairs, equipment life cycle rebuilds, as well as reliability and performance work including packing change-outs from its two absorber towers.
