A Nova Scotia research group will look for deep coal deposits and saline aquifers in northern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton as it studies the possibility of carbon capture and storage to reduce greenhouse gases. The federal and provincial governments announced $5 million in funding at a Halifax press conference on Wednesday for the research project. The project will be directed by Nova Scotia’s Carbon Storage Research Consortium, a group that includes the provincial Energy Department, Nova Scotia Power and Dalhousie University.
Nova Scotia announced a tidal research effort a couple of months ago. They announced funding for biofuels from waste plastic and now stealing a page from Alberta wtih carbon capture research?
This is good stuff.
