As part of a new Canada’s National Observer series breaking down climate basics, we delved into some common questions about carbon capture. Here is everything you need to know about the contentious technology governments and industry are banking on.
A group representing Canada’s largest oilsands producers got the green light to evaluate a proposed carbon storage site in northeastern Alberta that would seek to curb planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions from the industry's operations.
An energy pact between Canada and Germany expected to be signed next week in Newfoundland and Labrador will set aggressive timelines and targets for exporting hydrogen to Germany, Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said on Friday, August 19, 2022.
Canada's new emissions standards for gasoline and diesel will allow oil companies that get a federal tax break for installing carbon capture and storage systems to also generate credits based on those systems, which they can then sell to refineries and fuel importers.
The federal government is delaying new emissions standards on gasoline and diesel another year but is demanding the oil and gas sector make bigger cuts to fuel emissions by 2030 given how much more money the companies are now making.
Long discussed but rarely used, carbon capture and storage projects — which bury waste CO2 underground — are on the rise globally. Some scientists see the technology as a necessary tool in reducing emissions, but others say it simply perpetuates the burning of fossil fuels.
Canada's big oil companies are making record profits this year and should be using some of that extra cash to invest in things that curb their greenhouse gas emissions, Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault said on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
