Recent articles on Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS)

  • Recently CBC News released an article How Ottawa hopes to supercharge Canada’s hydrogen fuel sector. CCUS is a part of this solution along with the need to build the infrastructure to process, store, transport and sell the hydrogen.
  • In July the Energy Future Forum released it’s policy position paper on Canada’s quest for a clean energy future that meets environmental and economic goals. It calls on the federal government to immediately lend support to the development and implementation of Canada’s unique carbon capture, utilization and storage technology, something that the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers have been supporting for long time. The policy position paper Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage: Its time to Act has the support of many of our clients including Shell, Imperial oil and Suncor, among others.
  • On June 24th we asked Boilermakers to write the Minister of the Environment and Minister of Natural Resources regarding CCUS. If you have not written them, we ask you to still consider doing so.
