To achieve Canada’s emission reduction targets, carbon capture and sequestration are important mitigation strategies. Yuri Leonenko is an expert in the development of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies to limit CO2 emissions from Canada’s oil sands. His current research looks at the development of new approaches and technologies that reduce the risks of CO2 leakage and make CCS more feasible and economic to implement.
