Carbon Capture and Storage projects in Canada include the:

  • Project Pioneer, which proposed to retrofit a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project to the existing coal-fired Keephills 3 power station west of Edmonton. In mid-October 2009 Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, speaking at the Keephills power station, said that "this plant will not just be a first for Canada; indeed, it will be the first of its kind in the world! ... Innovations like carbon capture and storage will define the future of this industry."[1] In April 2012 the project collapsed with Transalta stating that it was uneconomic.[2]
