One-million tonne milestone reached in carbon dioxide storage
Ottawa is celebrating the milestone of permanently storing one-million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) through the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL), the world’s largest carbon capture and transportation project.
One million tonnes represents the annual emissions of approximately 350,000 cars.
“Canada is well positioned to be among the cleanest, most innovative economies in the increasingly low-carbon global economy. We have an agile workforce, companies that are innovating to cut pollution — including Enhance Energy — and a comprehensive climate plan with the regulations, an effective price on pollution, investments and policies that are required to incentivize and reward innovation. The more pollution we reduce, the more jobs we will create. For the good of our workers, economy and planet, we will continue to embrace all of the tools, technologies and innovations required to do exactly that,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada.
