  • Bio-sourced asphalt from the Canadian forest industry

    FPInnovations is developing a lignin-modified asphalt formulation suitable for the Canadian paving industry.  For this project, the company plans to produce a lignin-modified hot mix asphalt that meets all performance requirements of road owners and asphalt producers. The process would reduce GHG emissions by replacing some of the non-renewable, fossil-based bitumen with renewable, bio-sourced lignin in asphalt production. […]

  • ATCO and Future Fuel RNG

    The project is a first-of-kind commercial demonstration to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) from biogas at an agricultural operation. The RNG will be injected into the Alberta pipeline system where a portion will be used within Alberta in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fleet vehicles and commercial applications. This project addresses a gap that bridges feedstock […]

  • Carbon Sequestration via Next-Generation Bioreactor Technology

    This project will demonstrate our novel, next-generation bioreactor technology at pilot-scale, an important step towards commercialization. This advanced bioreactor, which has been validated in the lab and field, will expand the scope of gas fermentation by increasing efficiency and reducing production costs. We propose to demonstrate and validate the performance of this bioreactor by producing […]
