Agency:University of Regina
Description:On December 17, 1999 the government of Saskatchewan and Natural Resources Canada announced the establishment of the International Test Centre for Carbon Dioxide Capture. The $8.5 million facility will develop technologies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, especially those produced by the energy sector. The Centre has two components: a $5.2 million pre-commercial scale demonstration plant at SaskPowers Boundary Dam Power Station and a $3.3 million pilot plant at the University of Saskatchewan for technology development and screening work. The ultimate goal of the research program is to develop more effective CO2 separation processes to remove CO2 from flue gases, industrial gas processing plants, and other industrial gas streams.
