The building industry accounts for 12% of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions. This paper intends to investigate the life cycle GHG emission reduction potential of including carbon capture systems in residential and commercial building heating systems. The potential for GHG emission reduction by a commercially available building level carbon-capturing system and a carbon-capturing technique used in fossil fuel power generation plants were compared. Due to the embedded emissions associated with the carbon-capturing process life cycle, the percentage reduction of life cycle GHG emissions reduction in MEA-based systems was lower than the reduction of operational GHG emission reduction in MEA based systems. However, the life cycle GHG emissions reduction of the KOH-based system was higher than the GHG emissions reduced during the operation when no emissions of the by-products were known.
