Burning fossil fuels results in emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas linked to climate change. One of the ways of reducing these emissions is carbon capture and storage. CCS involves, capturing the CO2 at the source – large emitters such as power stations or industrial plants. The CO2 is then trucked or piped to where it can be injected into deep geologic formations where it remains instead of being emitted into the atmosphere.
Crude oil reservoirs are well-suited for storing CO2. They are deep, sealed by the same rocks that have sealed in the oil, and, in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects, injecting CO2 helps to recover more oil.
The most studied CCS/EOR project is the Weyburn field in Saskatchewan, where more than 13 million tonnes of CO2 have been injected since 2000. That’s the equivalent of taking more than 3.5 million cars off the road for one year.
But there are others. FLOW looked at some CCS projects two years ago. Enhance Energy’s Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL), a pipeline that will take CO2 from large emitters in Fort Saskatchewan and Strathcona County to oilfields in south-central Alberta, received approval under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act in September 2010. Construction on the capture facilities could begin as soon as 2012, and on the pipeline itself in 2013. When fully operational, it will have the same impact as taking 2.6 million passenger vehicles off the road.
TransAlta, Capital Power, TransCanada and Enbridge are partners in Project Pioneer, which is designed to capture one million tonnes of CO2 per year from the Keephills 3 coal-fired electricity generation plant near Edmonton. The CO2 will then be used in EOR projects or injected into deep saline aquifers. One million tonnes of CO2 is roughly equivalent to the emissions from 182,000 passenger vehicles.
Capital Power is also involved in a similar project at the Genessee 3 power plant. Husky Energy has a project underway that captures CO2 from its Lloydminster ethanol plant for injection into its nearby heavy oil fields. Arc Resources began injecting CO2 at its Redwater oilfield in 2008. Although still in the testing phase, results have been encouraging.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change in the UK is challenging you to solve the problem of reducing the country’s CO2 emissions by 20 per cent of 1990 levels by the year 2050.
The data behind the 2050 simulation is based on actual UK data. You read along and learn about how the country uses energy and then decide how you see its future. The program quantifies your ideas and prompts further questions about the impact of your choices.
When you are done you get a snap shot of what your world looks like – again nicely quantified and easy to understand – including geography references, scale and scope of development that would be required, nod to efficiencies realized and a literal count of things like wind turbines and nuclear power plants that would be required. You can return to your musing and try again or submit the results.
But what we really like about this sim is that it’s the foundation for the Pathway Debate. Eight climate and energy experts have set out how they think the UK could meet the target using the 2050 tool. Brilliant. This is one of the best online tools we’ve seen recently to help consumers understand the relationship between supply and demand. It’s about the energy mix and how all of the sources work together to power the future. So hop to it and take a spin or should we say a sim.
Really, everyone these days is an energy armchair critic, picking winners and losers and thinking they have a better idea. Now it’s your turn. You decide. And you just might learn something in the process.

According to the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NTREE), because of uncertainty in U.S. climate policy direction, Canada should adopt a phased-in approach to climate harmonization policy with the U.S. Doing so will avoid delay in emissions reductions and maintain economic competitiveness.
Parallel Paths: Canada-U.S. Climate Policy Choices, is the third report in the NRTEE’s Climate Prosperity series examining the economic risks and opportunities of climate change for Canada. The report explains that while our economies are integrated and the U.S. is our largest trading partner, there are significant differences that call for a made-in-Canada policy. The report shows that Canada’s current policy of harmonizing greenhouse gas reduction targets with the United States requires a higher carbon price in Canada to achieve those targets. Alternatively, harmonizing with the U.S. on carbon prices alone, rather than on targets, means Canada’s GHG target of cutting emissions to 17 per cent below 2005 levels by 2020 would not be met.
The report suggest a “Transitional Option Policy” which contains four elements:
- Contingent Carbon Pricing – to establish a price collar that limits the Canadian carbon price to no more than $30.00/tonne CO2e higher than the price in the U.S.
- A National Cap-and-Trade System – with auctioning of permits and revenue recycling to cap emissions and address regional and sectoral concern
- Limited International Permits and Domestic Offsets – to keep domestic carbon prices lower for Canadian firms
- Technology Fund – to stimulate investment in needed emission reductions technologies.
The report also recommends creating a new Canadian Low-Carbon Technology Fund financed through the compliance investments of carbon-polluting firms.
The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy is an independent Canadian federal advisory agency dedicated to preserving the environment while maintaining a strong economy.

It’s been a while since Flow tackled the issue of geo-engineering — the theoretical science of not just reducing our emissions to address climate change, but actively trying to change the climate. Perhaps because the proposed technologies are nearly all as drastic as you’d expect from a science based on literally engineering the planet — installing CO2 “scrubbing” air filters, encouraging CO2-consuming algae blooms — geo-engineering doesn’t often get a lot of attention. But now, one geo-engineering solution is getting a nod from none other than the United Nations itself, in the form of a proposed ban on any technology designed to block the sun.
While it’s easy to notice the oddly super-villain-like tone of a ban on massive orbital sun-blocking technologies, it’s also important to remember that any effective geo-engineering solution would necessarily involve the whole world. Allowing one country to unilaterally control the world’s climate would be an issue of national security.
The body responsible for this discussion is the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity, which has already issued another geo-engineering-related directive limiting the use of iron in the ocean as an algal fertilizer.
Solar energy is a phenomenal source of energy, with the Earth receiving a full 1.8×1014 kilowatt-hours of energy. According to the World Energy Council: “if only 0.1 per cent of this energy could be converted at an efficiency of only 10per cent it would be four times the world’s total generating capacity of about 3,000 [gigawatts].”
Rogue nations with massive mirrors and geo-engineering enthusiastic alike, beware:
We’re watching you.

The Alberta Government has invested two billion into carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, hoping to sequester the province’s emissions deep within the earth. As one of the only provinces to rely heavily on coal-generated power (Alberta currently has nine coal-fired facilities), and one whose economy relies heavily on oil and gas, this sequestration is an essential part of the province’s overall energy strategy.
In the province, the University of Calgary, in particular, has made a name for itself in the field. Its research is coordinated by the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (ISEEE). The ISEEE also provides a central online location for its own reports and others’, exploring the complex issue.
According to the university’s researchers, the Wabamun Area CO2 Sequestration Project (WASP) demonstrates that the costs of injecting CO2 and storing it in geologic formations are relatively low — about $3 per tonne of carbon dioxide. The cost to capture the CO2, pressurize it and transport it from the site where it was generated, however, would be about 10 times more than the cost of storage.
But beyond costs, one of the biggest questions about CCS technology is whether it can permanently sequester CO2. Obviously, if the CO2 leaks out, the entire point of the exercise is moot.
But just how much leakage is too much? That number, it turns out, is very small: one per cent.
According to research published in Nature Geoscience, unless CO2 leakage can be kept below one per cent of the reserve per year, CCS will not be able to mitigate the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and ocean acidification.
The severity of a one per cent leak decrease as the periods of time increase (from years to decades to centuries), but such a leak wouldn’t actually be problem-free until the thousand-year mark. It’s a huge span of time, but when it comes to waste disposal of any kind, we’re definitely talking about the long haul.

From CO2 capturing in Exshaw to solar and wind power installations in 9,000 homes across the province, Alberta’s climate change fund is paying out for the first round of emission-reducing energy projects.
Launched in April 2008, the Climate Change and Emissions Management Fund allows companies annually producing more than 100,000 tonnes of GHG emissions to pay $15 for every tonne over their allowed limit (companies must reduce the intensity of their emissions by 12 per cent). Companies can also buy carbon credits in the Alberta-based offset system, but the fund has proven to be a popular option: to date, it’s collected about $40 million.
Now, the province’s Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation is providing the first round of funding, designed to support projects that will ultimately reduce the same GHG emissions that fuel the fund.
The corporation selected 30 projects from 223 project submissions. These include $8.2 million for a Lethbridge biogas cogeneration plant (ECB Enviro North America Inc.), $3 million for a solar thermal power project (City of Medicine Hat) and $1.8 million to develop a pilot plant to produce biofuel and utilize carbon dioxide (Enerkem Inc.). But the province won’t just be seeing carbon-reducing projects that generate power.
The 30 projects run the gamut from renewable energy generation, like Calgary-based Enmax’s plan to install 9,000 wind- and solar-generation kits in Alberta homes over five years, to energy efficiency and carbon capture and storage (CCS), like a CO2 capture facility at a limestone production facility in Exshaw. It’s a slate of projects that shows the diversity of the province’s carbon mitigation efforts, and the growing interest in unconventional approaches to energy. And even if it’s not exactly magic, pulling project funding out of invisible gases still isn’t a bad trick.

It may look like a party, but it’s a very successful way to raise awareness about climate change issues on a global scale. On Saturday, March 27, at 8:30 pm, everyone will once again be able to show their support for Mother Earth by turning off the lights for one hour. Watch the event unfold on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, TwitterCanada, on the website to name a few.
In 2009, 4,159 cities and towns across 88 countries, including 73 national capitals and 9 of the world’s 10 most populated cities participated in the event. One billion people can’t be wrong.
turn off, tune in and step up is the new turn on, tune in and drop out.

Canada and its 29 partners in the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) are being challenged by the Paris-based body to have the political moxy to put carbon taxes in place.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria threw down the gauntlet during a news conference he called to release the Economics of Climate Change Mitigation, an OECD study which is a key element of preparations for the COP15 in Copenhagen in early December.
Among other things, the report urges developed countries to at least double their targets for reducing greenhouse gases and Gurria said it provides the analytical support and economic rationale to help decision-makers at the Copenhagen summit to strike a practicable deal on climate change.
In its report, the OECD says carbon taxes must be part of a broader strategy for Copenhagen. The current average OECD commitment is for a reduction of 8-14 per cent from 1990 levels by 2020, well short of the 25-40 per cent cut the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says is necessary to keep global average temperatures from rising by more than two degrees Celsius.
Calling on OECD member governments to coordinate support for taxes as well as a cap-and-trade approach which would effectively put a price on carbon, the OECD says complaints about costs of carbon taxation are unjustified.
It concedes that a global carbon market would have a four per cent negative effect on global gross domestic product by 2050, but Gurrie pointed out that over the same period, GDP growth is projected to grow by more than 250 per cent.
Gurria said “action to mitigate climate change must be taken at a cost that countries can afford.” That was possible only with “a cost-effective set of policy instruments, with a focus on carbon pricing” applied as broadly as possible to all emission sources. He admitted the unlikelihood of getting a global carbon market overnight but said some countries may need to take the lead despite understandable concerns about their international competitiveness.
He said these first movers also worry about carbon leakage, the risk that emissions reductions in some countries would offset by increases elsewhere. ”Developed countries need to take the lead in reducing emissions, but the most cost-effective way to tackle carbon leakage would be for the largest emitting emerging economies to join them and, later, all developing countries.”

Speaking to a Toronto audience earlier this month, Suncor CEO Rick George said that Canada needs a national energy strategy in order to take full advantage of its vast resources and its proximity to the United States. George told the business audience that Canada cannot wait much longer for a national energy strategy in light of events around the world, and especially south of the border.
“The Canadian energy sector is simply too important to manage passively or leave to chance,” said George. “The Obama administration is moving forcefully on both energy security and climate change issues. If Canada is to be a policy maker rather than a policy taker, we need to get our own energy house in order — and quickly.”
Such a strategy, in George’s view, could have many characteristics. For example, Canada should do a thorough, long-term energy assessment for its businesses and residents then match that assessment with policies and infrastructure. As well, energy efficiency should be a hallmark of a national energy strategy, said George, and policy makers should look beyond basic energy production to consider the full life cycle of energy sources. “After all, up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions from a barrel of oil are generated through the tailpipe.”
“Many of the countries where conventional oil reserves are still abundant are plagued by political and economic instability. For Canadians and for our neighbours to the south, Canada is and should be seen as a pillar of reliable and responsible resource development.”

350.org has organized this day of action to rase awareness of climate change issues. The organization’s name comes from the idea that 350 parts per million is the number some scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Organizers hope that the thousands of events today will change the negotiating environment in Copenhagen and help governments realize that the climate treaty they agree on in December pays attention to science and citizens around the world.
Organizers have confirmed that there are more than 4,000 events registered in about 170 countries. Canada was second to the United States in terms of the number of events planned, including 350 Group Photo Brownvale, Salt Spring Island, 2100 Salt Spring Island, Yasodhara Ashram, 10 Divine Light Invocations Hornby Island, B.C., 1-hour Awareness Walk through the Downtown Streets Summerside, PEI, 10 min de luz de Velas-10 min on candle lights Montreal, 10in10Diet.com Sharbot Lake, 2009 Cape Breton Eco Expo Sydney, 350 – take the bus and ride with us Peace River, 350 @ 3:50 with 350 St. Catharines, 350 Action Walk North Bay, 350 acts of green Mississauga, 350 Art Collage by Markham Arts Council Markham, 350 Awareness in Burlington!
