    In 2011, construction began on a full scale integrated carbon capture and storage demonstration project at the SaskPower Boundary Dam lignite power plant, in Saskatchewan. Two years later and the facility is nearing completion. Boundary Dam is on course to being among the first low carbon fossil power plants in the world. The facility will capture one million tonnes of CO2 per annum from a 110 MW pulverised coal unit when it begins operation next year. The CO2 will becompressed and transported 60km for use in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).

    Construction of the CO2 capture facility is taking place in parallel to an overhaul of unit three in the coal power plant. The upgrades include boiler modifications and replacement of the steam turbine. As a result, even with the parasitic energy loss due to CO2 removal the thermal efficacy of the unit will decrease.
