ValueCAD$ 2.85 million
In collaboration with the international initiative, Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT), ERA is committing $2.85 million to facilitate the deployment of CCUS technologies. The total funds available for this global funding program is $19 million and is open to projects in participating countries: Germany, India, Norway, United States, or Canada. ERA funding is sourced from the Government of Alberta’s Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund.
ERA funding is open to all categories of applicant, including technology developers, industry, industrial associations, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), research and development (R&D) organizations, universities, municipalities, not-for-profit organizations, government research labs, and individuals.
Projects of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Carbon capture: production of a pure CO2 stream from combustion and/or processes at the point of emissions.
- Carbon capture and transportation networks: integrated approaches combining multiple capture points and transportation infrastructure to link multiple specific capture sites to a common network.
- Direct carbon conversion: implementation of a process that directly absorbs carbon into a product at the point of emissions such as the creation of CO2-based products (e.g., fuels, chemicals, building materials).
- Permanent Storage: captured CO2 is transported to a geological storage site and then injected deep underground where it is permanently stored.
- Utilization to Storage via Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)/Enhanced Gas Recovery (EGR): the captured CO2 is transported to an oil-field and is used to stimulate more oil production, with the CO2 then being stored in the oil-depleted reservoir.
- Clean Hydrogen Production: low-carbon hydrogen production from fossil sources combined with CCUS.
- Carbon dioxide removal (CDR):
- Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS)/ Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): utilisation of biomass as an energy source and the capture and permanent storage of CO2produced during the conversion of biomass to energy.
- Direct Air Capture (DAC): production of pure CO2 stream from ambient air.
- In-situ carbon mineralization: CO2 captured, compressed, and stored in reactive geologic formations where CO2in the fluid form mineralizes to produce water-insoluble calcium or magnesium carbonates, such as in basalts offshore.
