CHAR Tech awarded $5 Million from Government of Canada – Bioenergy Insight Magazine



CHAR Technologies (CHAR Tech) has been awarded a contribution of approximately $5.2 million (€3.5 million) from the Government of Canada’s Natural Resources Canada Clean Fuels Fund.
The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Canada delivered the announcement at CHAR Tech’s Thorold, Ontario facility.
The Clean Fuels Fund aims to significantly increase domestic production capacity of clean fuels, underpinning Canada’s journey towards a prosperous low-carbon future.
With the Clean Fuel Fund contribution, CHAR Tech is poised to conduct the comprehensive engineering and design to replicate its flagship Thorold wood waste to biocarbon and renewable natural gas (RNG) facility.
The Clean Fuels Funded projects in development will expand CHAR’s footprint to Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Saint-Félicien, Québec, La Sarre, Québec, and Drayton Valley, Alberta, and are in addition to the project previously unveiled in Terrace, British Columbia.
Minister Wilkinson said: “Today’s federal investment will help decarbonise the operations of high-emitting sectors, create good jobs in local communities, power homes and businesses efficiently and attract investment into Canada’s clean fuels market.
“We will continue to support innovative projects to decarbonise and keep going on the energy transition for the Niagara region and for the country as a whole.”
Andrew White, CEO of CHAR Tech, commented, “CHAR Tech is honoured to be the recipient of Natural Resources Canada Clean Fuels funding. We extend our gratitude to the Government of Canada and Minister Wilkinson for their unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship.
“With the support of the Clean Fuels Fund, we are poised to swiftly actualise our proprietary process, fostering the advancement of localised sustainable energy solutions throughout Canada.”
