Vancouver BC based Canadian coal producer Teck Resources has announced a Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage pilot project at its Trail Operations metallurgical complex in southern British Columbia. The CCUS pilot is expected to begin operation in the second half of 2023. The pilot plant will capture carbon dioxide from the Acid Plant flue gas at Trail Operations at a rate of 3 tonnes per day. The pilot project will also evaluate options for the utilization and/or storage of the captured CO2 at Trail Operations. If successful, the project could be scaled up to an industrial CCUS plant with the potential to capture over 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year at Trail Operations, the equivalent emissions of more than 20,000 cars.Teck acknowledges the support of the CleanBC Industry Fund for its funding contribution towards the CCUS Pilot Plant Feasibility Study which was an important step in advancing the pilot. The CleanBC Industry Fund highlights the alignment between industry and government in achieving Canada’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.The CCUS pilot supports Teck’s Net-Zero Climate Change Strategy including our goal to reduce the carbon intensity of our operations by 33% by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
