Energy Innovation Program – Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage RD&D Call

By mmuise

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) provides an important pathway to emissions reductions for energy and industrial activities under conditions where neither electrification nor low carbon fuels are able to provide technically or economically feasible low-carbon solutions. The program supports businesses, academia, non-profits, government, and federal laboratories on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050. The CCUS RD&D call will focus on earlier-stage RD&D activities across three different focus areas:
1. Capture - Closed as of October 3, 2022;
2. Storage/Sequestration (to characterize and develop safe, permanent sub-surface CO2 storage to support planning of cost efficient storage opportunities across Canada);
3. Utilization (to expand the strategic uses of CO2, and support the development of cost and energy efficient utilization pathways).
