Canadian mining company unveils CCUS pilot plans


Plans for a new carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) project in British Columbia have been unveiled to decarbonise the operations of one of Canada’s leading mining companies.

Teck Resources on today (28th June) unveiled plans for the pilot at its Trail Operations metallurgical complex that could potentially see the capture of over 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.

Set be operational in the second half of 2023; the pilot plant will capture CO2 from the acid plant flue gas at Trail Operations at a rate of three tonnes per day and evaluate options for the utilisation and/or storage of the captured CO2.
