Canada's Pathways Alliance CCUS projects, developed by a consortium of Canadian oil sands producers, will together likely constitute the largest operating CCUS project in the world once built. The projects also represent the best chance at simultaneously decarbonizing the Canadian oil sands while maintaining the oil sands' importance to the Canadian economy. See this report for: - Economic analysis of the Pathways projects - Discussion of the Canadian CCUS regulatory and incentive environment and how it compares to the United States' - Wood Mackenzie's take on what's holding the Pathways projects back, and how that can be overcome
