Source: University of Calgary In 2011 Dr. Shimizu received a $563,000 grant from CMC for his MOF research. For details click here A new federal grant for the University of Calgary will provide a comprehensive training opportunity for students working on cheaper, more efficient means of capturing greenhouse gas emissions – that will ultimately help
Today, Canada revealed its proposed greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction plan for the Paris Conference of the Parties to be held in November and December this year.
Dear Friends of CMC, I regret to inform you that CMC is cancelling its annual 2015 conference. The financial challenges facing the Canadian energy industry have had an impact on the conference – resulting in low registration numbers, and low numbers of research presentations and posters. CMC’s past conferences have been excellent, setting ver

A workshop to identify possible interactions between UK research projects and the wider CMC’s Field Research Station (FRS) research program is being held in Cranfield on April 20 and 21 by the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) and CMC. Facilitating the meeting will be Don Lawton, Director of CMC’s Containment and Monitor
The Research Council of Norway has issued two calls – one targeting CO2 storage and Enhanced Oil Recovery, the other aimed at facilitating international R&D collaboration. CO2 and EOR focus The call focused on CO2 and EOR projects has a budget of about CAD 3.2 M, and is asking for projects addressing CO2 storage combined with EOR or EGR.
CMC congratulates Dr. David Risk, Department of Earth Sciences at St. Francis Xavier University, on being named as a member the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.

CMC is proud to unveil its newly designed website for CMC Research Institutes (CMC). The new website reflects a change in direction for CMC as it has evolved from its role as a Network of Centres of Excellence funding academic research, to a company focused on moving transformational carbon management technology from the bench to large-scale use
Drilling has been completed on the first well at CMC’s Field Research Station. Don Lawton, Director of the Field Research Station (FRS), says the well was drilled to 550 m with no major complications or delays. The FRS, located 20 km southwest of Brooks, AB, offers technology developers, researchers and end users the capacity to develop and test me
