Carbon capture: Here's what you need to know about the Elon Musk-backed tech

Elon Musk is nothing if not divisive. But if there’s one thing about the world’s richest man that people tend to agree on, it’s that he’s good at picking winners.

Big Oil’s Net-Zero Plans Show the Hard Limits of Carbon Offsets

Many of the recent net-zero commitments, however, behave as though these constraints don’t exist. What is discretionary is how fast we eliminate fossil fuel use and transition to clean energy. We have great deal of visibility about how to do that, and agency to make it happen.

Reversing the Flow – Repurposing Wells for Carbon Capture & Storage?

2020 is a year that’ll be remembered for many reasons. Covid aside, it’s been a turning point for the offshore industry, one where net-zero solutions have been top of the agenda, including within well abandonment. Elaine Maslin takes a look.

Carbon capture technology has been around for decades — here’s why it hasn’t taken off

While trees and other plants can remove some carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, most climate change experts agree we can’t plant enough, fast enough, to do the job alone.
Carbon capture technology has been around for decades, and is used to strip carbon out of factory emissions as well as remove carbon that’s already in the air.
But it’s expensive, and until the cost of releasing carbon into the air rises, there’s little economic incentive to use it.

Carbon capture: What you need to know about catching CO2 to fight climate change

Technology may be crucial to reaching climate targets, but cost remains a challenge. This story is part of a CBC News series entitled In Our Backyard, which looks at the effects climate change is having in Canada, from extreme weather events to how it's reshaping our economy.
