The climate crisis is affecting economies across the globe and putting communities on the lookout. Economic growth, social development and climate action require sustainable industrial and technological development. Fortunately, resourceful and passionate minds are working to implement technologies that capture and transform CO2 to use in value-added applications. Once again, innovation is bringing us to a pivotal point in industry evolution.
BBA is a leader in decarbonization engineering solutions, assisting industrial and institutional clients on the front line of this transformational move towards a circular, resilient and low-carbon economy. For over 10 years, we’ve been involved in some of the largest carbon capture projects in Canada—at the source and directly from the atmosphere. Our recognized expertise in electrical and power plant auxiliary systems and our in-depth knowledge of industrial and petrochemical processes, combined with our experience with various technologies, have also been great assets in some of the largest Canadian hydrogen projects.
Conscious of the changing green social contract, we provide solutions that combine the goals of economic development with environmental protection. Our sustainability practice, including advisory insight, tested engineering, environmental expertise and onsite field presence, allows us to approach challenges with a holistic view to find the best solution for all industrial client operations, as unique and complex as they may be.
BBA is helping decarbonize the aviation sector
The aviation sector needs to significantly reduce its GHG emissions. Fortunately, recent breakthroughs in the use of low-carbon fuels are opening the door to a promising future for the sector—and BBA is proud to be a part of it.
Detailed engineering of the world's first commercial biorefinery
Enerkem Alberta Biofuels set an ambitious goal for itself to establish the world’s first commercial biorefinery to produce biomethanol from landfill waste, such as textiles, plastics, wood residue and packaging waste.
Detailed engineering for a pilot project to capture CO2
BBA was involved in a CO2 capture demonstration project of 30 tonnes per day with Svante at the Husky Energy industrial gas boiler plant in Lashburn, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Svante (formerly Inventys Thermal Technologies) offers companies in emissions-intensive industries a commercially viable way to capture large-scale CO2 emissions from existing infrastructure, either for safe storage or to be recycled for further industrial use in a closed loop. With the ability to capture CO2 directly from industrial sources at less than half the capital cost of existing solutions, Svante makes industrial-scale carbon capture a reality. It is a rapid cycle temperature swing adsorption (TSA) based process with a proprietary intensified process cycle, novel structured adsorbent filters and low-cost continuous rotating adsorption equipment.
