Manitoba introduces carbon capture and storage legislation

Manitoba introduces carbon capture and storage legislation

WINNIPEG – The Government of Manitoba is introducing legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) through a framework for industry to work on underground carbon capture and storage projects.

The proposed legislation would allow Manitoba to implement a licensing process for carbon capture and storage projects including comprehensive assessment of each project, a release said.

“This is an important step forward in our work to make Manitoba a leader in the low-carbon economy. By working with industry to develop carbon capture and storage projects that would reduce emissions, we’re keeping Manitoba competitive while helping to reach our net-zero targets,” said Jamie Moses, minister of economic development, investment, trade and natural resources, in a statement.

Businesses would also require an environment act license in addition to the carbon capture license, Moses added.

Carbon capture, utilization and storage is a carbon management tool that involves preventing greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere by utilizing emissions in other processes or sequestering them underground permanently. 

Federally-approved carbon capture and storage frameworks have been used in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan and carbon capture projects have operated safely since 2014, Moses said.

Holistic cattle grazing, or AMP (Adaptive Multi-Paddock) grazing does this. Plus there’s nutrient-dense food as a saleable product. This is not fancy new expensive tech as the government is espousing.
