Carbon Capture and Storage
Sources of CO2 - Atlantic Canada
View H. Pothier, G. Wach, and M. Zentili's work on Carbon Sequestration in Atlantic Canada [PDF - 13.2 MB] (2011).
Here is a map of Atlantic Canada illustrating locations sedimentary basins adjacent to major sources of CO2 emission sites (modified from Enachescu, 2006).
To be economically feasible, the CO2 emission source must be close to the storage reservoir. Here we can see the proximity of emission sites to the surrounding Eastern Canadian basins and existing pipeline infrastructure.
The main sources are the power generating stations in both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick which burn a combination of coal, bunker ‘C’, light fuel oil and natural gas.
Lesser sources include cement manufacturing facilities.
