  • Sustainable Nanofiltration Technology for Vegetable Oil Refining

    Seppure has developed transformative technology for separation and filtration applications in the food and pharmaceutical sectors as well as other industries. The process uses solvent-resistant nanofiltration membranes with well-defined nanosized pores to achieve chemical separations at a molecular level without the use of heat. The objective of this project is to develop and implement an […]

  • Brewery GHG reduction first-of-kind commercialization project

    Blindman Brewing is partnering with Earthly Labs to adopt their CO2 capture and reuse technology in its brewing process in collaboration with Olds College and the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute. CO2 that is free from oxygen and nitrogen is captured from the fermentation process and sent to a foam trap where most of the liquid […]

  • Cattle Feed Additive for Reducing Methane Emissions

    The project by Synergraze Inc. is aimed at commercially growing and processing a natural cattle feed additive based on a strain of red algae. At less than one per cent inclusion level, the feed additive is capable of reducing methane emissions in cattle and other ruminants by up to 90 per cent while also increasing […]

  • Demonstrating the impact of genomics-enhanced whole herd genetic management platform on reducing beef greenhouse gas emissions

    This project includes the development and demonstration of a genomics enhanced whole herd genetic management platform for the beef industry. This platform will predict the genetic merit of growth, feed efficiency, carcass, and fertility traits as well as retained hybrid vigor. Demonstration of the platform is based on the premise that more efficient cattle not […]

  • Sultech Global Innovation Corp. production of Micronized Sulphur and formulation into a sprayable Wet Elemental Sulphur Fertilizer (A Commercial Demonstration Project)

  • A Matter of Timing and Source: Enhanced Efficiency Nitrogen Fertilizers and Products to Reduce Nitrous Oxide Emissions in the Prairie Provinces

    It’s no secret that Alberta’s cropping systems require fertilizer to optimize yields and economic returns. But synthetic nitrogen fertilizers are a source of nitrous oxide — a greenhouse gas 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Farmers typically apply fertilizer at the end of growing season and may over apply fertilizer to compensate for fertilizer […]

  • Methane emissions from beef cattle bred for low residual feed intake

    The primary purpose of this project is to use cutting-edge gas-sensor technology and other techniques to measure, in real-world Alberta beef production settings, methane emissions from beef cattle measured for residual feed intake (RFI) and bred for low RFI. Methane is a potent GHG that results from the natural digestive processes in the animal stomach […]

  • Control of point-source low-volume methane emissions using methane biofiltration technology

    This project includes a market study to identify and evaluate the commercial feasibility of methane biofilter applications across several industry sectors and in various situations. The study includes a carbon offset evaluation to determine CO2e reductions of methane biofilter projects and the implementation of several full-scale pilot projects to demonstrate the technical feasibility of various […]
