FCL exploring carbon capture with Whitecap Resources to help meet new emissions targets
Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) is committing to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent below 2015 levels by 2030. FCL is also aspiring to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
As part of efforts to achieve these new emissions targets, FCL has signed a memorandum of understanding with Whitecap Resources that will tangibly increase the amount of carbon dioxide being captured and sequestered in Saskatchewan.
Through the planned operating agreement, carbon dioxide emissions captured from the Co-op Refinery Complex in Regina and Co-op Ethanol Complex near Belle Plaine, Sask., would be transported to, stored in and used as part of the Whitecap-operated Weyburn Unit.
