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 Regulatory Framework Assessment was initiated in March 2011 in response to Alberta’s $1.3 billion investment in two commercial-scale CCS projects in the province. These projects will provide a starting point for CCS in Alberta, and are a key part of the province’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As well, projects of this scale will reaffirm Alberta’s commitment to innovation and environmental sustainability. This report is the result of a multi-stakeholder process, which included the steering committee, a panel of international experts and four specialized working groups. Each of these bodies had participants from around the world, including senior members of several Canadian provincial governments, the federal government, industry, academia, and non governmental organizations.
