CMC Investment: $450,000/3 years

Wide-scale public acceptance of CCS will not happen if the process is not viewed as secure. Researchers are working to improve methods to monitor the movement and behavior of CO2 that's been injected into storage sites. The aim of this project is to develop a new approach that will improve quantitative monitoring and contribute to the deployment of CCS at scales significant for climate change mitigation. Researchers are developing an effective downhole geoelectrical technique that will complement current seismic methods used to monitor injected CO2. Data gathered through this new technique will be used to study and compare the relationship between the electrical conductivity and seismic properties of CO2/brine/rock mixtures. The technology will be tested in the lab and in the field and will lead to improved interpretation of seismic data.

Project: Low carbon fuel demonstration pilot plant for the cement industry

Lead Investigator: Dr. Warren Mabee, Queen's University

Co-PI: Andrew Pollard, Queen's University

CMC Investment: $400,000/3 years

In this collaborative effort involving academic researchers, the Cement Association of Canada and World Wildlife Federation Canada, six different low carbon biofuels will be co-fired with fossil fuels. Manufacturing cement requires large inputs of energy in order to heat the cement kiln to temperatures of up to 1450 Deg C. Normal practice is to combust fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum cokes. Replacing some of those fuels with low carbon fuels such as construction & demolition wood and railway ties, will result in a net reduction in GHG emissions be
