At GLOBE Forum 2022, the government of Canada announced funding of over $12 million to seven organizations to support the development of clean technologies. Included in that funding are three biomass projects:

  • $4,583,000 to Canfor Pulp Ltd. for a front-end engineering design study to support a biomass-to-low-carbon-biofuel plant, which will produce biofuels that can be used in transportation
  • $1,852,941 to ArcelorMittal Dofasco in Hamilton, Ont., to showcase the use of biocarbon in an industrial blast furnace, to support the commercialization of the technology at the company’s plant
  • $1,160,587 to the University of British Columbia to advance thermochemical processes to produce renewable natural gas from forest residues

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

The funding for these projects come from the Clean Growth Program (CGP).
