This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of legal issues associated with deploying an offshore DAC system, powered by offshore wind turbines, in Canadian waters and storing the captured carbon dioxide in sub-seabed rock formations.
Making Terrestrial Geoengineering Technologies Viable: An Opportunity for India-Canada Climate Leadership
This report makes the case that India and Canada must work together on geoengineering governance in advancement of climate goals, while seeking to collaborate on new carbon-materials industries to harness the potential of terrestrial geoengineering.
This paper argues that a national strategy for climate engineering research ought to be developed as part of Canada’s broader climate strategy.
Regulating Geoengineering Research through Domestic Environmental Protection Frameworks: Reflections on the Recent Canadian Ocean Fertilization Case
This article considers the application of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) to a controversial ocean iron fertilization project off the coast of British Columbia.
This paper highlights the benefits Alberta has obtained from the passage of carbon capture and storage (CCS) legislation and summarizes some of the work taking place via the Regulatory Framework Assessment (RFA).
This report examines the CCS legislation passed in Wyoming, Kansas, Montana and the States of Victoria and Queensland in Australia to generate an understanding of the positive and negative elements of written CCS legislation in Alberta.
This report recommends regulatory changes related to the technical, environmental, safety, and monitoring requirements for the safe deployment of CCS as well as other actions to increase the body of knowledge on CCS-related topics.
The Changing Legislation and Regulation of Carbon Capture and Storage: Impacts on Purpose, Policy, and Projects
This article considers the impact of the Carbon Capture and Storage Statutes Amendment Act, 2010 legislation and potential inter-jurisdictional conflicts, and briefly compares the CCS legislation of other jurisdictions with Alberta’s legislation.
