Provincial government officials say the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund is helping Alberta’s industrial sector reduce emissions and stay competitive. …According to the province, it has been a critical part of Alberta’s emissions reduction leadership showcase at COP27 in Egypt. …The government is said to be making up to $50 million from the TIER fund available for the new Industrial Transformation Challenge. …The government says applicants may receive up to $10 million per project, with a minimum request of $250,000. Funding is available across Alberta’s industrial sectors in both new and existing industries, such as petrochemical, agriculture, forest products, manufacturing, and energy. “Sustainability is foundational to Alberta’s forest industry, and continuous improvement of our operations and processes is a big part of that. This funding opportunity is an important step that will enable our sector to continue to advance technology and drive innovation,” shares Jason Krips, CEO, Alberta Forest Products Association.
