Clean Technology: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) and Hydrogen

By mmuise

The Carbon Capture and Utilization program supports Alberta SMEs with technologies that convert carbon dioxide into useful products with significant commercial value. CCUS is an important pathway for Alberta and to decarbonize its heavy industries, like oil and gas, petrochemicals, and cement manufacturing, to meet 2030 to 2050 emissions reductions targets and net-zero ambitions.
Support is open to researchers, innovators, small and medium-sized enterprises, large companies and others who are seeking funding, expertise and/or sector leadership to advance technology development from TRL 3-7.

Comments on Funding:

Project funding can be up to and typically does not exceed $2 million per project from the Process. The continuous intake programs normally support 25 – 50% of total project costs, with remaining funding from other project partners and other funding agencies (including cash and in-kind support).
