New CO2 removal project announced for Saskatchewan, builds on MLTC Bioenergy Centre – Canadian Biomass Magazine

April 29, 2024

A new carbon dioxide removal (CDR) project has been announced in Saskatchewan.

The Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) and Carbon Alpha are teaming up to build the North Star Project near Meadow Lake, Sask.

North Star builds upon the existing MLTC Bioenergy Centre by adding carbon capture and storage (CCS). The bioenergy centre generates renewable power fuelled entirely by waste biomass, such as bark and sawdust, from MLTC’s integrated sawmill and sustainably managed forestry operations.

Forestry biomass consumes carbon dioxide (CO2) over its lifetime. By capturing the biogenic CO2 emissions from the MLTC Bioenergy Centre and injecting it deep underground, the project effectively removes CO2 from the atmosphere safely and permanently, generating high-quality CDR credits.

“The Meadow Lake Tribal Council is on a journey to increase participation in the Saskatchewan economy for our 9 First Nations, including green energy infrastructure development, climate change mitigation, improving environmental outcomes and supporting our local forestry-based economy in the Meadow Lake area,” said Tribal Chief Richard Ben of the Meadow Lake Tribal Council.
