Canadian RNG, biofuel projects receive share of $12m funding

RNG and biofuel projects have received a share of over $12 million (€8.7 million) in funding from the Government of Canada.

The government is making investments to enhance Canada’s competitive advantage, diversify market opportunities, create jobs, and achieve its emissions reduction targets. At the GLOBE Forum 2022, Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, announced the investment in seven organisations advancing emerging clean technologies.

The University of British Columbia in Vancouver received $1,160,587 (€842,000) to create breakthrough advances in thermochemical processes to economically produce RNG from forest residues.

In Hamilton, Ontario, ArcelorMittal Dofasco received $1,852,941 (€1.34 million) to demonstrate the ability to use biocarbon in an industrial blast furnace in support of future commercial technology demonstration at the ArcelorMittal Dofasco plant.

Canfor Pulp in Prince George, British Columbia, received $4,583,000 (€3.32 million) to execute a front-end engineering design study to support a biomass-to-low-carbon biofuel plant, which will produce advanced biofuels to be used as a liquid transportation fuel.

“The Government of Canada is pleased to invest in projects that position Canada’s natural resource sectors as leaders on the global stage,” said Wilkinson. “Through innovative ideas and with dedicated partners, we are helping to grow the economy in a way that is compatible with our climate commitments.”
