Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA): Industrial Efficiency Challenge    

The objective of the Industrial Efficiency Challenge is to 1) accelerate the deployment and adoption of leading technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, 2) accelerate technology with near-term market potential (commercial deployment in <5 years), and 3) improve cost competitiveness across Alberta’s industrial sectors.

The funding will support Alberta’s large emitters subject to the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation (CCIR).   review

Examples of potential areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

.  Process improvements (combustion, catalysts, water treatment, etc.)

.  High efficiency equipment (motors, pumps, compressors, etc.)

.  Waste heat utilization and low carbon industrial heat

.  Fuel switching, electrification, and alternative feedstocks

.  Digital optimization and automation

.  Industrial carbon conversion/utilization

.  Industrial transportation and logistical optimization
