The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) system is the world’s newest integrated, large-scale carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) system. Designed as the backbone infrastructure needed to support a lower carbon economy in Alberta, it has the world’s largest capacity pipeline for CO2 from human activity and is capable of transporting up to 14.6 million tonnes of C02 per year. This represents approximately 20% of all current oilsands emissions or equal to the impact of capturing C02 from more than 2.6 million cars in Alberta.

CBC News has written a report on the opening of the pipeline, check it out here: At long last, new carbon capture project launches in Alberta
