WEBINAR - BD3 CCS Integrated Facility: Technical Capabilities

 Apr 11, 2018 - 7:00 am – 8:30 am

In collaboration with the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN), the International CCS Knowledge Centre presented the 2nd of three webinars on the necessity of large scale CCS to meaninfully reduce global CO2 emissions.  

TOPIC - BD3 CCS Integrated Facility: Technical Capabilities

CCS applied to large point source emissions is the technology that yields the biggest reduction in CO2 emissions.  Canada is a leader in CCS, and it needs to be advanced at a greater rate to meet the Paris Agreement emissions reduction targets. 

The International CCS Knowledge Centre’s technical team has the world’s most extensive operational CCS knowledge as they were instrumental in the integration of the CCS facility at SaskPower’s Boundary Dam Power Station (BD3) and over three years of operational experience.

Early in 2018, the BD3’s CCS facility surpassed 2Million Tonnes of Captured CO2. Along with this significant milestone, the International CCS Knowledge Centre offers, those looking to advance large scale CCS, the benefit of the essential lessons learned, such as: technical and engineering decisions, models and practices that are critical to ensuring success, and avoiding pitfalls and mistakes – ultimately to reduce the cost and risks in order to expediate the CCS deployment to mitigate emissions and take climate action.



The CTCN is the operational arm of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change  (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism. The CTCN's role is to promote the accelerated transfer of environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development at the request of developing countries. All CTCN webinars are free to attend. 

Wednesday 11 April 2018
