In order to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and succeed in a low-carbon economy, the province of Alberta requires more clean technology developers to lead their ideas through to commercialization. To contribute to this endeavor, 11 Alberta cleantech projects have received government funding support. These chosen initiatives are expected to
Up to 40% of Alberta’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are produced by electricity generation, transportation, and biological industries (including agriculture, forestry, and waste management). Minimizing the environmental impacts of these three areas is critical, but lack of clean technologies (cleantech) is preventing many companies from adopting these sorts of innovations.
Nine oil sands producers in Alberta, Canada have been awarded with Alberta government funding. The companies chosen to receive cleantech grants had projects dedicated to reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) at a competitive cost using advanced innovative technology. In turn, these projects will be help increase the global competitiveness of Alberta’s
The Government of Alberta has awarded $29.5 million in small business grants to support 12 cleantech projects. The investment will help accelerate innovative technology development projects that aim to reduce methane gas emissions.
The contribution has been provided through the Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) program, which supports the development of innovative
Alberta’s oil sands are critically important to the provincial economy, both in terms of employment and overall economic output. Despite this immense economic benefit, oil sands are Canada’s fastest growing source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and sustainable technologies are needed for the industry to survive mounting environmental pressures. Fortunately,
