Alberta Carbon Grid™ is designed to connect regions of large concentrations of emissions to key sequestration locations and delivery points across the province, with opportunities for further expansion.
- ACG is a carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) project that aims to transport more than 20 million tonnes of CO2 annually – about 10 per cent of Alberta’s emissions from multiple customers, industries, and sectors
- In addition to using new assets, existing infrastructure, and a newly developed carbon sequestration hub, ACG is planned to connect the province’s largest regions of industrial emissions, for example, the Fort McMurray Alberta Industrial Heartland, Edmonton-area emitters, and the Drayton Valley region, to key sequestration locations
- As an industry-wide solution, ACG will have an impact to reduce GHG emissions and contribute positively to Alberta’s lower-carbon economy
- ACG has a vital role to play in addressing climate change by directly contributing to Alberta’s plans to create a clean hydrogen economy, enhance petrochemical facilities, and to help achieve Canada’s enhanced climate targets
- Based on initial studies, the ACG sequestration reservoir is expected to be capable of providing decades of safe and reliable CO2 storage capacity
- ACG is progressing towards an advanced stage of readiness and has the potential to be operational in advance of Canada’s enhanced 2030 emissions targets
