The Boundary Dam CCS Project rebuilt a coal-fired generation unit with carbon capture technology, resulting in low-emission power generation. In the fall of 2014, the project came online as the world’s first post-combustion coal-fired CCS project. This project transformed the aging unit #3 at Boundary Dam Power Station near Estevan, Saskatchewan into a reliable, long-term producer of 120 megawatts (MW) of base-load electricity, capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year, the equivalent of taking more than 250,000 cars off Saskatchewan roads annually. The captured CO2 is sold and transported by pipeline to nearby oil fields in southern Saskatchewan where it will be used for enhanced oil recovery.
