Safely Storing Carbon Dioxide: Dr. James Brydie, Senior Researcher at Alberta Innovates, Technology Future, explains the type of geology that is required.
Alberta - Moving Forward on Carbon Capture and Storage
Burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas through activities like transportation and energy development produces greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). These emissions contribute to global climate change.
Climate change is a serious concern for our planet. Governments across the globe are responding to climate change through a number of initiatives, including reducing their GHG emissions. Alberta is no different.
One of the ways Alberta will reduce emissions is called carbon capture and storage (CCS). Understandably, there are concerns about how this works and what effect it will have on Albertans and the environment.
Here you’ll find the information you need to answer your questions about CCS and its role in managing greenhouse gases.
