B.C.’s Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation has contributed $5.6 million toward the project in low-carbon fuel standard credits. Other funding is coming from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, BC Knowledge Development Fund, Natural Resources Canada, Western Economic Diversification Canada and industry partners.
