Last week in Canada the first carbon capture and storage (CCS) project for tar sands oil upgrading was announced. NRDC supports the use of CCS technology as one of many tools to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for existing operations. Unfortunately, rather than proposing the so-called “Quest” facility as a means of cleaning up existing tar sands operations, the sponsors used the project as greenwash for a dramatic expansion of tar sands production.
