CO2 Solutions Announces Carbon Capture Pilot with Husky Energy

        CO2 Solutions Announces Carbon Capture Pilot with Husky Energy  PR Newswire  QUEBEC CITY, April 15, 2014  TSX-V: CST  QUEBEC CITY, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - CO[2] Solutions Inc. (TSX-V:CST), an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, today announced that it has entered into a Collaboration Agreement (the "Agreement") with Husky Energy.  Under the terms of the Agreement,  CO[2] Solutions will install and operate  a  pilot unit capturing approximately 15 tonnes of CO[2] per day at Husky's Pikes Peak South, Saskatchewan  heavy oil  site on a  once-through steam  generator.  Operation of  the  pilot unit  is  expected to  commence  in early  2015  with  completion of testing  expected in the  third quarter of  2015. Subject to  a  positive review  by Husky  of the  results of  the pilot  test, the  Agreement  provides for Husky  to consider  the use  of CO[2]  Solutions' technology  for  commercial carbon capture projects.  The project will  be funded in  part by the  Government of Canada's  ecoENERGY  Innovation Initiative (ecoEII) program, as previously announced on January 24, 2013.  "The pilot demonstration of our technology is a significant milestone  towards  the commercial deployment of our  technology for CO[2] capture and  beneficial  utilization applications  such as  enhanced oil  recovery," said  Evan  Price,  President and CEO  of CO[2] Solutions.  "Husky is a  recognized leader in  the  energy industry and will provide valuable expertise to this project."  "Through the ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative,  our Government is investing  in  projects that drive energy innovation,  create jobs and generate new  economic  opportunities  that  protect  the  environment,"  said  the  Honourable   Greg  Rickford, Minister of Natural Resources and Minister for the Federal  Economic  Development for  Northern  Ontario. "Today's  announcement  demonstrates  that  these investments are successfully bringing innovative clean technologies from concept to reality."  The pilot test is expected to  confirm the positive techno-economics of  CO[2]  Solutions' carbon capture  process and  will provide an  operational basis  to  compare the process against other  new and conventional technologies in  terms  of performance  and cost.  A successful  project will  pave the  way for  the  CO[2]Solutions technology  to be  applied broadly  for cost-effective  carbon  emissions mitigation in heavy oil and  oil sands operations in Western  Canada  and other industrial applications.
