Emerson Joins Carbon Capture and Storage Program Led by Carbon Management Canada
June 3, 2022 – Carbon Management Canada (CMC) welcomes Emerson to its collaborative carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) program. The joint industry partnership program focuses on developing and implementing cost-effective, secure and practical carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions.
“We’re excited Emerson has joined our Joint Industry Partnership. CMC injects CO2 and uses monitoring technologies to detect and track the movement of the CO2 stored underground. We share those findings with our member companies,” said Greg Maidment, Director of Operations and Applied Research. “The work we’re doing at the site is cutting edge and Emerson will be able to expand their knowledge in CCUS to meet their decarbonization goals.”
The program is offered through CMC’s 200-hectare Field Research Station in Southern Alberta and provides access to the extensive high-quality CCS monitoring data and information acquired there, as well as first access to research results from CMC’s experts, researchers from the University of Calgary and other academia partners. In addition, Emerson will have opportunities to test and assess different technologies.
“Emerson’s partnership with CMC is a significant opportunity to research and highlight the capabilities that will be needed for large-scale carbon sequestration,” said Mike Train, Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer at Emerson. “Capturing carbon and safely sequestering it underground will be critical to achieving a net zero world. CMC is a very unique and strategic facility for understanding how to do this under real operating conditions. The potential for what we can learn at the site – and ultimately share with stakeholders around the world – is an important step on our collective decarbonization journey.”
