The CCS revival – part three: Canada’s advance

Proposals for six blue hydrogen-related projects are putting the nation at the forefront of the CCS sector

The Canadian carbon capture and storage (CCS) industry, historically second to the dominant US sector, has seen significant progress in the last few months. Leading the charge are proposals for six blue hydrogen-related developments, including four production projects with the potential to capture almost 9mn t/yr of CO₂ and the two trunklines capable of moving well over 20mn t/yr to geological storage sites—in addition to the 14.6mn t/yr capacity of the recently completed Alberta Carbon Trunk Line. Policy drivers Canada and the US have the geology, institutional knowledge and expertise to be highly successful at CCS, but Canada has until now underperformed when compared with other regions,
