The federal government has announced a $81.5-million call for expressions of interest to support research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects in carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS).

Project applications are open now until Oct. 3, 2022, and include three intakes: capture, storage and sequestration, and utilization.

In a news release from Natural Resources Canada, the government said the projects are aimed at emission-intensive industries, such as steel and cement.

“Many of the technologies needed to reach our goal of net zero by 2050 are still in various stages of development, including decarbonization solutions such as CCUS. The Government of Canada is investing in innovative clean energy RD&D projects to help grow the economy, fight climate change and create good jobs for Canadian workers,” Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said in the release.


This is the second call in support of CCUS innovation, the first of which focused on front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for large-scale projects. Eleven projects were selected in April 2022, including SAF+ Consortium Inc., in Montreal, Que.
