RIS Review not required for EOI submission
Monday 3rd, October 2022
NRCan is currently accepting Expressions of Interest for the Capture focus area of the CCUS RD&D call, until October 3, 2022. The Capture focus area supports the development of next generation CO2 capture technologies and processes that can lower costs and address different emissions sources, sizes, and concentrations compared to the current conventional CO2 capture technologies that are more suited for larger-emission sources. Funded projects will advance technologies that capture CO2 from industrial sources or advance negative emissions technologies.
Applicants who are invited to the next stage of the process will be asked to submit a Full Project Proposal in Spring 2023. We anticipate selecting projects for funding by Summer 2023.
NRCan is sharing this information with Indigenous organizations to raise awareness of funding opportunities for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities. Participation in the development of CCUS projects can create benefits for Indigenous groups including job creation, economic growth, and environmental improvements. Indigenous groups can also help incorporate traditional knowledge in projects and develop partnerships that support long-lasting economic and environmental opportunities for Indigenous communities beyond the life of the projects.
The Capture focus area is one of three focus areas under the CCUS RD&D call. NRCan is planning to launch two other focus areas – storage/sequestration, and utilization – in the coming months, and will share more information when it becomes available.
