Brief description:

ICO2N stands for Integrated CO2 Network, a proposed carbon capture and storage (CCS) system for Canada. The companies participating in the ICO2N carbon capture and storage initiative represent a cross-section of Canadian industry committed to helping Canada meet its climate change objectives.

It is a proposed carbon capture and storage system (CCS) for Canada. ICO2N will ultimately consist of a CO2 capture and storage policy framework and the construction of the infrastructure for a CCS system. Such a system will have three key elements:

  • facilities to capture CO2 at its source,
  • a pipeline backbone and distribution system to transport CO2,
  • and injection facilities at enhanced oil recovery sites or long-term disposal locations.

Once constructed, this proposed Canadian CCS system will move carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from multiple industrial sites via pipeline to storage sites deep underground. Studies indicate the ICO2N carbon capture and storage proposal has the potential to reduce Canada's CO2 emissions by 20 million tonnes - the equivalent of annually removing four million cars from the road.
