Proving out CCS at scale leads to a sustainable future
Since Saskatchewan’s Boundary Dam Carbon Capture Project - the world's first power station to successfully use carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology – came online in 2014, carbon capture innovation in Canada has grown significantly.
Representatives from three Canadian companies at the forefront of this innovation – CarbonCure, Carbon Upcycling and Carbon Engineering – will discuss their operations, their activities in the United States, and where they see carbon capture technologies headed in terms of further commercial deployment.
Both CarbonCure and Carbon Upcycling are finalists in the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE initiative to develop breakthrough technologies to convert CO₂ emissions into usable products. Carbon Engineering is one of The World Economic Forum’s 2020 Technology Pioneers, and is working in partnership with Oxy Low Carbon Ventures to develop the world’s largest Direct Air Capture facility, located in the Permian Basin.
NCAC Executive Council Member at Large and Energy Counsellor at the Embassy of Canada in Washington, D.C., Aaron Annable will moderate the discussion.
Registration will close on the prior business day, September 22, when registrants will also receive a Zoom link at the close of business. Opportunity to use the Q&A function of Zoom during the webinar. Access to the event recording after logging into www.ncac-usaee.org as a member.
Rob Niven is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CarbonCure Technologies, which manufactures a technology that introduces recycled CO₂ into fresh concrete to reduce its carbon footprint. Niven has received international awards recognizing his leadership in sustainability, innovation and technology development, including Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 and the BloombergNEF New Energy Pioneers Award.
Apoorv Sinha is the Co-founder, President and CEO of Carbon Upcycling Technologies, which makes CO₂ waste-derived nanomaterials for use in concrete, corrosion coatings, plastics and material additives. Sinha has been recognized as a Clean50 Emerging Leader and as a Forbes 30 Under 30 winner, and the company has received numerous technology prizes and awards.
Anna Stukas is Vice President Business Development at Carbon Engineering, which has developed a Direct Air Capture technology that can be used to create large-scale carbon removal from the atmosphere. Stukas is a professional engineer who currently leads partnering and customer business development efforts across Canada for Carbon Engineering, a recipient of Canada’s Clean50 and British Columbia’s Cleantech awards.
