ACA Congratulates Government on Incentives for Innovation

On Friday, March 3, 2017 the Government of Alberta announced matched provincial and federal
government funding for the Alberta Carbon Conversion Technology Centre (ACCTC) which will support
the development of a facility to test breakthrough technologies that convert CO2 from harmful
emissions into applications for everyday use. Both levels of government are contributing $10 million.
ACA believes the best way forward on how to deal with CO2 emissions comes from private sector and
emerging technologies. It allows companies to innovate and offer practical solutions which enable
communities to benefit from their experience and knowledge.
We are happy to see the governments get behind these ideas as they add jobs and create opportunities
to continue to deal with environmental concerns in the future.
For further information on the government release click here.
