A new look and new resources for Canada’s leading online resource for information on Carbon Capture and Storage – www.ccs101.ca re-launch and international teachers curriculum guide

August 16, 2012

REGINA, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – There is a new-look website and new
materials online for people wanting to know more about Carbon Capture
and Storage technology (CCS).

The CCS101.ca website is a one-stop-shop for information on CCS. At
CCS101.ca visitors can access the latest knowledge on CCS in Canada and
from around the world. As Canada leads global CCS research, development
and large-scale demonstration, this website aims to make information on
this important suite of technologies available to everyone, both
domestically and internationally.

CCS101.ca was funded through the IEAGHG Weyburn – Midale CO2 Monitoring
and Storage Project. This project is the world’s largest and most
extensively researched CO2 monitoring and storage project, involving
researchers from around the globe. “It is incredibly important for us
as researchers to look beyond the project and put forward information
about this technology in a way that is accessible to people globally,”
said Dr. Malcolm Wilson CEO of the Petroleum Technology Research
Centre, and a former member of the International Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) that won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

The newly refurbished CCS101.ca website is hosted locally in
Saskatchewan and has added some impressive features for educators,
including full access to a highly anticipated international curriculum
guide on CCS. Developed by the Global CCS Institute in Canberra,
Australia, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research
Organisation (CSIRO), these materials set the international benchmark
for bringing discussions on low-emissions energy technologies into the
classroom.

“The CCS education resources have been reviewed by science and education
experts and trialled in classrooms across Australia and
internationally. We are delighted that Canada will be the first country
outside Australia to provide them thanks to the established CCS101.ca
website. We are confident they will help school students understand the
important role CCS can play as one of the technologies needed to move
to a low carbon economy, ” said Brad Page, Chief Executive Officer,
Global CCS Institute, which launched the curriculum resources earlier
this week during National Science Week in Australia.
