Our 40-hour Design of Carbon Capture Infrastructure course covers carbon capture process conceptualization and considerations for techno-economic objectives and constraints and process. You'll also examine mechanical, electrical and instrumentation design and life cycle assessment. You’ll have access to an industry-experienced instructor while you work through this online course. This course has been designed to upskill engineering and design personnel to apply engineering design principles and standards to designing post-combustion CO2 capture processes and processing units.
ENVS-016 is part of our Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) micro-credential series. The series is intended for upskilling energy services workers, engineers, geoscience professionals, operators, technologists or trades professionals.
Note: Registration for this course closes two days before the course start date.
Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll be able to:
- describe the different carbon capture technologies and processes and their technical readiness, benefits and limitations
- outline sector-specific applications for CCS, including strengths and weaknesses
- describe the components, objectives and constraints associated with post-combustion carbon capture processing
- demonstrate an understanding of how to develop and document capture process design work packages
- demonstrate an understanding of how to develop and document related mechanical design work packages
- demonstrate an understanding of how to document related electrical and instrumentation design requirements
- demonstrate an understanding of how to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) for the carbon capture process and use outputs of the LCA to inform and improve carbon capture processing.
You’ll demonstrate your skill and knowledge acquisition through quizzes, written assignments and exams. This online course is structured and guided. All coursework must be completed as per the course schedule and no later than the course end date.

A qualified talent pool is required to increase the scalability and affordability of CCS as a pathway to net zero. Workers who know how to design, construct, operate and maintain CCS infrastructure are needed.
If you are working in engineering and design, this course will benefit you as you expand your knowledge and expertise needed to apply engineering design principles and standards to the design of post-combustion CO2 capture processes and processing units.
This course will also be valuable for anyone seeking to better understand the design of the carbon capture infrastructure and its implications for Canada to meet net-zero goals.
You must be a minimum of 18 years of age at the time you start this course. There are no other admission requirements (academic and/or work experience).
ENVS 011 Introduction to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a mandatory prerequisite for this course.
For a limited time, tuition (including the tech fee) is fully funded by Canadian Colleges for Resilient Recovery (C2R2) for ENVS-016 and all other courses in our Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS) micro-credentials series. Choose a course section in the series that has a start and end date that is before March 31, 2024.
All course materials are included and accessible in the Brightspace (D2L) learning platform on the course start date.
We recommend registering as soon as possible (7–14 days in advance of the course start date).
