Priorities and Pathways: CCUS Workshop Summary Report
Since the early 2000s, Canada has been at the forefront of CCUS project development. With an eye to developing a robust CCUS industry in Canada, the Pembina Institute and CMC Research Institutes with support from CanmetENERGY hosted a one-day expert workshop in September 2018. Participants assessed the opportunities and barriers to CCUS development and deployment in Canada, and worked to define the action necessary for Canada to play a leadership role in the emergence of this trillion dollar global industry.
Based on the economic opportunity and environmental imperative, the 2018 CCUS Workshop Report concludes by calling for a national network of CCUS stakeholders to ensure consistent and stable political support, to establish a strong positive narrative, and to advance a national strategy for CCUS innovation and commercialization including realistic objectives for sector development, domestic and international investment, and export growth.
