Reaching net zero emissions by the year 2050 will require transformative change – and MLT Aikins is proud to be at the forefront of that change along with the International CCS Knowledge Centre.
MLT Aikins has entered into a collaboration agreement with the Knowledge Centre to help industry leaders gain a better understanding of carbon capture and storage/utilization (CCS/CCUS) projects. These projects capture CO2 emissions before they enter the atmosphere and either store the CO2 deep underground or use it to support enhanced oil recovery projects.
CCS has been identified as a critical part of Canada’s plans to meet net-zero emissions targets, particularly among high-emitting sectors. By collaborating with the Knowledge Centre, MLT Aikins will explore opportunities to support industry leaders undertaking large-scale CCS projects.
“We are pleased to partner with the International CCS Knowledge Centre on this important initiative to reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions,” Regina lawyer Randy Brunet said in a press release. “CCS projects will be key to achieving net zero, but they come with a number of technical and regulatory challenges. Our goal is to help industry move forward with confidence when implementing CCS solutions.”
The Knowledge Centre is a world leader in large-scale CCS projects, offering guidance on project readiness and business case considerations, as well as insights gained from the technical application of CCS. MLT Aikins is pleased to have advised a number of CCS projects, including the cutting-edge $1.24-billion Boundary Dam Integrated Carbon Capture and Storage Demonstration Project, which has now become a world-renowned carbon capture facility whose learnings are shared by the Knowledge Centre.
