Publication - Nov. 22, 2005 - By Mary Griffiths, Thomas Marr-Laing, Paul Cobb

Carbon Capture and Storage: A Canadian Primer examines whether carbon capture and geological storage is an arrow in the quiver or a silver bullet to combat climate change. It reviews technologies to capture carbon dioxide from point sources, transportation of CO2 to injection sites and the potential for storage in deep saline aquifers, depleted oil and gas reservoirs and coal seams as well as its use for enhanced oil recovery. The risks of carbon capture and storage (CCS) are examined and its role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Canadian and global storage and sequestration policy and initiatives are described.
