NewsCMC building Canadian team for international decarbonization project
Imagine the year is 2050. The world is on track to achieve a 2C long term temperature increase consistent with a 450 ppm atmospheric CO2concentration. The Gross World Economy has tripled since 2014, averaging 3% annual growth. The population globally has grown to 9.6 billion people.
While climate change mitigation work is not done, the hard work required to stay within the global carbon budget has been aggressively tackled, AND we live in a prosperous world. There is no talk of “burden sharing” in this future.

There is an urgent need to better characterize containment risks in both natural and engineered systems. Loss of containment impacts the environment whether this is on the surface or in the subsurface, and it may lead to delays in resource production or loss of efficacy of fluid disposal. The Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI) is a platform for development and performance validation of technologies intended for measurement, monitoring and containment of subsurface fluids including carbon dioxide.
