The government of Alberta, Canada, has chosen Heartland Generation to evaluate carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) and hydrogen production as part of the power generation company’s Battle River Carbon Hub (BRCH) project.
The BRCH project proposes to integrate CCS and hydrogen production at the Battle River Generating Station using existing infrastructure. A CSS hub next to the site would capture and sequester carbon from the company and other regional industrial sources.
This July, Heartland Generation received C$5 million ($3.64 million) in funding from Emissions Reduction Alberta’s Carbon Capture Kickstart Program. The company will use the funds to evaluat the feasibility of turning the Battle River station from natural-gas powered to 100% hydrogen-powered.
