The Challenge

There is an urgent need for carbon-reduction technology solutions as Canadian companies set their sights on bold emissions reductions targets – specifically, net-zero emissions by 2050. Deployment of Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) has historically been slow  despite credible carbon models’ importance of these technologies in decarbonizing economies. Canadian CCUS companies require support to accelerate the scaling of their technologies, and improve their entrepreneurial business development capacity to secure pilots, strategic commercial partners and scale

Supporting Canada’s CCUS Opportunity

Supporting the CCUS sector in Canada will drive economic diversification and growth, while also decarbonizing industries. Carbon Management Canada (CMC) and Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Canada are partnering to develop carbonNEXT: an exciting sectoral ecosystem-based accelerator built to drive the development and adoption of Canadian carbon reduction technologies, and to attract international CCUS companies to establish operations in Canada.
