Alberta Carbon Trunk Line project

WWW.BLUEFUELENERGY.COM: Capturing and transporting CO2 by pipeline is fundamental to Blue Fuel Energy’s plan to produce carbon-neutral DME/Blue Fuel in British Columbia. Recent announcements about Enhance Energy’s Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) project, and support for it by the governments of Alberta (C$495m) and Canada (C$63m, from the Clean Energy Fund) have certainly caught our attention, even though the CO2 is slated for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and not the production of alternative fuels.

As regards the link between the ACTL and the production of DME/Blue Fuel, the key points are that the technologies for large-scale carbon capture and the pipelining of CO2 are ready to roll—and that energy companies that clearly understand that a carbon-constrained future is fast approaching have an opportunity to utilize recycled CO2 to produce an emerging carbon-neutral fuel that will have a significant role in mitigating climate change, enhancing air quality, and providing energy security in countries around the world.
