Shell Cansolv CCS technology

CCS technology developed by Shell Cansolv is now in use at the Boundary Dam power station in Saskatchewan, Canada. Boundary Dam is SaskPower’s largest coal-fired power station and a significant source of power for the region. 

CCS has been installed in one unit of the plant and will be able to capture around 1 million tonnes of CO2 a year. Most of the CO2 will be used for enhanced oil recovery to improve efficiency in nearby oil fields and then permanently stored underground.

Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM), Norway

This is the largest centre of its kind to test CO2 capture technologies. It demonstrates COcapture at scale (up to 100,000 tonnes of COa year) and contributes to reducing the costs of CO2 capture. The centre was inaugurated in May 2012 and two different capture technologies are currently being tested. Owners of the centre are Gassnova SF, A/S Norske Shell, Sasol and Statoil ASA.
