We need to prioritize research into carbon capture if we are going to confront climate change and take full advantage of our existing resources.
That, from Montana Governor Steve Bullock as his State along with North Dakota, Wyoming and Saskatchewan signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage today (Fri) at the Western Governors' Association meeting. Premier Brad Wall says the four energy-producing jurisdictions are committed to sharing knowledge on this technology so we can manage greenhouse gases responsibly . He added that Saskatchewan has much to contribute with SaskPower's Boundary Dam 3 project, which is the world's first commercial power plant with a fully integrated post-combustion carbon capture system. The MOU indicates the four governments will collaborate on CCUS knowledge sharing and capacity building, as well as policy and regulatory expertise for everything involved with carbon capture and enhanced oil recovery.
