On November 18, 2002, Sustainable Development Technology Canada — a $100-million fund to demonstrate and commercialize sustainable development technologies –announced approval of funds for eight projects totalling $6.61-million.
If these technologies are successfully applied the total contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction is estimated at 11.2 mega-tonnes within what would be the first Kyoto commitment period of 2008 – 2012.
The successful organizations include: Alberta Research Council; Sherbrooke, Quebec-based Bio-Terre Systems; Victoria, B.C.-based Carmanah Technologies; Toronto, Ontario-based The Conserval Group; Saint-Foy, Quebec-based CO2 Solutions Inc.; Saint-Laurent, Quebec-based Mabarex Inc.; Calgary, Alberta-based Suncor Energy Inc.; Vancouver, B.C.-based Westport Innovations.
