SaskPower, BHP Billiton to set up CCS centre here

Saskatchewan’s Crown-owned electrical utility and the world’s largest mining company want to share learnings from SaskPower’s Boundary Dam integrated carbon capture and storage (CCS) project with the world.BHP Billiton and SaskPower signed an agreement Thursday to establish a “global knowledge centre’’ in Regina to “help promote research and reduce the cost and risk associated with new CCS projects.’’ The $1.47-billion Boundary Dam CCS project, which was officially launched last October, is the world’s first commercial-scale, post-combustion CCS project at a coal-fired generating station. Economy Minister Bill Boyd, minister responsible for SaskPower, noted the “clean coal project’’ has received numerous awards, including the 2015 Edison Award, the global electrical industry’s highest honour. “SaskPower, though, isn’t just simply resting on its laurels,” Boyd told delegates at the third Post-Combustion Capture Conference (PCCC3), who were attending a one-day symposium sponsored by SaskPower.“Today we’re very proud to announce the signing of an MOU (memorandum of understanding) with BHP Billiton that will facilitate how we share what we’ve learned with the world. This partnership with BHP Billiton is the next step in making CCS technology globally accessible.’’
