A New Look and New Resources for Canada's Leading Online Resource for Information on Carbon Capture and Storage
Date:17 Aug 2012
There is a new-look website and new materials online for people wanting to know more about Carbon Capture and Storage technology (CCS). The CCS101.ca website is a one-stop-shop for information on CCS. At CCS101.ca visitors can access the latest knowledge on CCS in Canada and from around the world. As Canada leads global CCS research, development and large-scale demonstration, this website aims to make information on this important suite of technologies available to everyone, both domestically and internationally. CCS101.ca was funded through the IEAGHG Weyburn - Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project. This project is the world's largest and most extensively researched CO2 monitoring and storage project, involving researchers from around the globe. "It is incredibly important for us as researchers to look beyond the project and put forward information about this technology in a way that is accessible to people globally," said Dr. Malcolm Wilson CEO of the Petroleum Technology Research Centre, and a former member of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
