"Calgary Leverages Oil, Gas Industries to Spearhead Carbon Capture Tech"

The city of Calgary in Canada is experimenting with carbon capture technology. Calgary, the hub of Canada’s energy industry, is trying to combat carbon pollution. The city is considering using carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology.

CCUS traps carbon dioxide before it’s released into the atmosphere and stores it. The technology could help reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. CCUS is currently costly but Calgary hopes to leverage its industries, like oil and gas, to fund it.
