GreenCentre Canada is Fuelling Companies’ Green Innovation

Companies that are planning chemistry-driven green projects and want $50,000-$150,000 in non-repayable funding support, read on. The GreenCentre Canada has received $1.5 million from the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation to encourage small- and medium-sized chemical companies to conduct research and development projects related to green innovation. The program was introduced to address a finding that companies are willing to tackle green innovation early on in their lifecycle. This is a perfect source of funding for companies looking to tackle energy conservation, waste reduction, and efficiency enhancement projects.
