Canada Increasing Investment in Carbon Capture

The Canadian government said that it will invest millions in the third carbon capture and storage project in Alberta.

"The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line project will capture carbon dioxide emissions created by the process of upgrading heavy oil produced in western Canada to lighter petroleum products, and then store and transport emissions for use in improving oil recovery at declining fields. The emissions will be pumped underground for the dual purpose of extracting more oil and for keeping the emissions, seen as a key contributor to global warming, from entering the atmosphere."
