BHP Boosts Carbon-Capture Study With $14 Million Canadian Center

BHP Billiton Ltd. will invest C$20 million ($14.4 million) in a carbon capture and storage research center in central Canada, in a bid to clean up fossil-fuel pollution from power plants.

The world’s largest miner will fund a research center that gathers data from the world’s first large-scale CCS project, a 110-megawatt coal plant operated by Saskatchewan-based energy company SaskPower, according to a statement by BHP Billiton.
