This large-scale project, located in the southeastern corner of Saskatchewan Province in Canada, is the first application of full stream carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery from flue gas of a 139-megawatt coal-fueled power plant unit. A major goal is to demonstrate that a post-combustion CO2 capture retrofit on a commercial power plant can achieve optimal integration with the thermodynamic power cycle and with power production at full commercial scale. The project will result in capture of approximately one million tonnes of CO2 per year, which will be sold to oil producers for enhanced oil recovery and injected into a deep saline aquifer.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Beijing meeting in September 2011.
