and SaskPower Symposium

Date 8th-11th September 2015

Boundary-Dam Boundary Dam Site

The PCCC3 conference was hosted by SaskPower, in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The conference built success of PCCCs1 and 2 and will focused on current PCC issues, developments and future trends in CO2 post combustion capture technology. SaskPower hled their 2nd CCS sympoisum to coincide with the PCCC3 conference to allow delegates to atttend both events this included a visit the CO2 capture facilities at Boundary Dam and Aquistore project.

Summary report

SaskPower Symposium

SaskPower’s Boundary Dam CCS Project is the world’s first commercial-scale CCS undertaking of its kind representing a significant milestone in the deployment of post-combustion carbon capture technology. Dedicated to the learnings of the Boundary Dam CCS Project SaskPower is hosting its 2015 CCS Symposium in conjunction with this year’s IEAGHG conference in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. SaskPower will use the experience and knowledge gained during the execution of its flagship CCS project to set directions for future research, development, and deployment of CCS in its province of Saskatchewan. This year’s SaskPower CCS Symposium will be the world’s first opportunity to learn about SaskPower’s experience in a technical way with the Boundary Dam CCS Project having now been in operation for just under a year. Confirmed operational data and learnings will be used to tell the story of SaskPower’s journey with CCS including difficulties, successes, and surprises.
