Enbridge Inc. and Lehigh Cement have agreed on a carbon storage deal in the Canadian province of Alberta, the two companies said Wednesday.
Enbridge will transport and store captured carbon dioxide produced by Lehigh Cement, a division of Lehigh Hanson Materials Ltd. Lehigh is developing a full-scale carbon capture, utilization and storage solution for the cement industry at its Edmonton plant, from which it plans to capture around 780,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide every year.
Enbridge said it will apply to develop an open access carbon hub west of the city through the provincial government's request for full project proposals process.
The project could be in service as early as 2025.
"This collaboration demonstrates our focus on local, cost-effective, customer-focused carbon transportation and storage solutions that drive scale and competitiveness while minimizing infrastructure footprint to protect land, water and the environment," said Colin Gruending, Enbridge's executive vice president and president of liquids pipelines.
