Husky works to actively reduce its emissions, including capturing carbon dioxide, reducing energy consumption, minimizing fugitive emissions and mitigating flaring and venting.
The Company's air quality and climate change strategies address criteria air contaminants (CACs),
Husky contributes to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an international forum which measures, discloses, manages and shares environmental information.
The Company’s air emissions strategy is supported by its Environmental Performance Reporting System (EPRS), allowing for reports that are consistent, and that can be reproduced and audited.
Turning Waste Gas into Power
Husky is minimizing emissions and odours at its Cadotte facility in Northern Alberta through a project that converts waste gas to power. Enough electricity is generated and sold into the grid for every home in the nearby town of Peace River.
Fugitive Emission Management Program
Fugitive emissions are unintentional hydrocarbon leaks from valves, piping connections, pumps and compressor seals, and other piping system components that occur as part of the normal wear and tear in plant operations.
To help detect, locate and manage leaks, six highly specialized infrared cameras are located at key Husky facilities, including the Ram River gas plant, the Rainbow Lake processing plant, both in Alberta, and the Husky Lima Refinery in Ohio.
