Japan CCS Co. and the International CCS Knowledge Centre (based in Saskatchewan, Canada) have signed an agreement to collaborate on “accelerating the use and understanding of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCS/CCUS)”. The agreement, signed last week, will centre on knowledge sharing, but will also involve collaboration on the development, demonstration and deployment of CCS/CCUS. Both sides are already heavily involved in pioneering CCS/CCUS technology, with Japan CCS Co. working on the Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project, which aims to demonstrate the viability of full-chain CCS in Japan, while the International CCS Knowledge Centre, being an initiative of BHP and SaskPower, carries the learnings from the Boundary Dam 3 CCS Facility. Those involved in CCS worldwide will be hoping to see the collaboration bear fruit.
