Saskatchewan-based alliance explores CCS potential for minerals and power production


The International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII) and the Government of Saskatchewan are looking to develop potential carbon capture and storage (CCS) hubs anchored by minerals and power production.

CCS hubs anchored by mineral and electricity production have the potential to support the production of low carbon hydrogen from natural gas since that process generates carbon dioxide which could be captured and sequestered.

Looking to benefit from this, the partnership will assess geological carbon storage in the southern half of the province, as well as transportation options. They will also look to design effective policies for hub development and investment.

Minister Responsible for Innovation Saskatchewan Jeremy Harrison described CCS hubs as an example of industrial innovation. He added, “This study demonstrates Saskatchewan’s continued leadership in cutting-edge CCS technologies.”
