The Boundary Dam Integrated Carbon Capture and Storage Project is a flagship CCS initiative. Through the development of the world’s first and largest commercial-scale CCS project of its kind, SASK Power is making a viable technical, environmental and economic case for the continued use of coal.
The $1.35 billion Boundary Dam Project will see the integration of a rebuilt coal-fired generation unit with carbon capture technology, resulting in low-emission power generation. in 2014, this will become the World’s First Post-Combustion Coal-Fired CCS project.
This project will transform the aging Unit #3 at Boundary Dam Power Station near Estevan, Saskatchewan into a reliable, long-term producer of 110 megawatts (MW) of base-load electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.… Learn more
