The world needs energy and that energy must come with greener solutions. Carbon emissions have long been a challenge, but carbon capture and storage is turning that burden into an asset. Less than a year into full operation, the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line system has safely and permanently stored one million tonnes of carbon dioxide. The system reduces the environmental footprint of industrial facilities and adds to the growing list of successful carbon capture, utilization, and storage projects around the world.
The Sturgeon Refinery is the anchor supplier of carbon dioxide to the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line system. It is the first heavy oil refinery in the world designed and built from the ground up with carbon capture, lowering the carbon footprint of diesel produced from Alberta’s bitumen. With the system in place, Sturgeon Refinery diesel is part of the energy transition as global demand increases for lower carbon fuel.
