The Government of Canada is supporting carbon capture technology with an investment totalling $950,000 (£578,143).

The funding will enable the Carbon Capture and Conversion Institute (CCCI) to design and install equipment that can capture carbon and turn it into products such as building materials, alternative fuels and consumer goods.

The equipment will allow researchers from industry, government and academic institutions to collaborate and test innovative carbon use technologies more rapidly and cost-effectively.

The announcement was made during the official opening of BC Research’s Technology Commercialisation and Innovation Centre, where the CCCI’s new pilot laboratory is located.
